1. Terrorists Bomb London: Arabs Claim "Credit"
"The Age"
Brief Extracts:
London bomb toll rises to 52

By Jesse Hogan, Annabel Crabb, James Button, Nabila Ahmed , London
July 8, 2005 - 2:43PM

A massive hunt is underway for the terrorists behind a series of bomb blasts on London's public transport system that killed 52 overnight.

As authorities try to verify a claim of responsibility for the attacks by a group linking itself to al-Qaeda, the BBC quoted Whitehall sources saying every resource was being used to build a picture of who was to blame.

British police said the fatalities centred around the Liverpool Street explosion, while others lost their lives at the King's Cross blast and more were killed at Edgware Road.

Others died in the explosion on a double decker bus at Upper Woburn Place.

At least 700 were injured. Many suffering burns and high-velocity puncture wounds packed the capital's hospitals, stretching facilities to the limit.

At Royal London hospital, where 208 victims were taken, 300 doctors and nurses treated the patients.

Britain's Home Secretary Charles Clarke, the country's top law enforcement officer, confirmed four explosions began at 8.51 am.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Brian Paddick said 33 died in the Underground rail system. Others had died in the bus explosion, but he gave no figures.

Assistant Commissioner Paddick said a train travelling between Kings Cross and Russell Square tube stations bore the brunt of the tragedy, with 21 passengers confirmed

A previously unknown group calling itself the "Secret Organisation of al-Qaeda in Europe" claimed responsibility for the attacks. The group said the explosions were in retaliation for Britain's involvement in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an Arabic-language news website.

A shaken British Prime Minister Tony Blair who rushed back to London from the G8 world leaders meeting confirmed within hours that the bombings were the work of terrorists, declaring the city had been hit by a "barbaric" attack.

"We are united in our resolve to confront and defeat this terrorism," he said.

"They are trying to use the slaughter of innnocent people to cull us, to frighten us out of doing the things that we want to," he said. "They should not and they must not succeed."

Australian Prime Minister John Howard last night expressed horror and disgust at the attacks, and said free nations must not yield to the threat of terrorism. "It's important that we stand shoulder to shoulder with our British allies at a time such as this," Mr Howard said.

The Queen later released a statement saying: "The dreadful events in London this morning have deeply shocked us all. I know I speak for the whole nation in expressing my sympathies to all those affected and the relatives of the killed and injured."

2. Support for Israelis "Orange" Settlers
From: William Rasmussen <>
Subject: Shalom and blessings to you from Bill Rasmussen!-Rally on July 19

Shalom Yair: I have gotten several e-mails requesting information on the World Wide Rally against
disengagement on July 19, 2005. I would direct Brit Am members to a couple of sites:
(1. The Gush Katif website in English- This site also has
orange T-shirts with the words, "This is my home" in Hebrew written on the front.
(2. Women in Green website: This site is the
primary site I use for updates on stopping the disengagement plan.
(3. If you want to find out about rallies in your area contact David Romanoff at

Hope this will help all supporters of Brit Am and Gush Katif so that Eretz Yisrael will not
be divided piecemeal to the Arabs.

Shalom, Bill Rasmussen

3. The Secret Base: Nutcase BC on the Rampage Again
Barry Chamish has sent out a new "scoop" in which he claims the Americans are
building a vast base near the Ben Gurion Airport to be used as a Concentration Camp to hold Jewish settlers in.
Remember the posting we sent out entitled "Stay Away From a False Report".
It is still pertinent.
Barry ("Fifth Columnist") Chamish was billed as the star attraction and major guest speaker
at a scheduled international conference of Holocaust Deniers in the USA.
Much to BCs openly expressed disappointed chagrin
the conference never took place since the JDL expressed an interest and the organizers decided that discretion
was the better part of valor.
BC is not however a Holocaust Denier. He is a Holocaust Negater in that he attributes blame to the victims
and their kin and not to the perpetrators.
A great portion of what he writes is not true and he should know so
and probably does.
Lately some Conspiracy Nuts have been putting out postings in support of the settlers while inserting
their own particular poison into the articles. Beware of them and their scheming.

Nearly All Conspiracy theories are at bottom anti-Semitic. They are newer versions of the Protocols of Zion.
What is more they are false and evil.
Collusion does take place. Class and economic interests do exists. People are susceptible to bribes
both openly and in roundabout ways. We can ALL be influenced by outside factors.
Nevertheless there is no Conspiracy BUT Conspiracy writers do belong in a de facto sense
to a sinister movement that is against both the "Anglo" and "Jewish" peoples and their kin.
Stories about the "Illuminati" and the like are like stories about witches.
Witches did exist and they may have done harm but the stories about them and the
reactions of people who started seeing them everywhere were far more harmful
than the witches ever where. In facts institutions such as the Inquisition who took it upon themselves
to drive out witchcraft proved themselves to be driven by satanic motivation.

4. Al-Quaida to Take Over Gaza After Israeli Settlers Are Expelled?
David Bedein
Bureau Chief
Israel Resource News Agency

In recent weeks, American, British and Israeli intelligence sources have revealed that al-Qaida units now operate in the southern section of Gaza, and are positioned to take over the area that Israel Defense Forces would vacate, if the proposed retreat plan is indeed carried out by the Israeli government.

5. Iran is a Danger to Israel

{Extracts Only]

TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's Defense Ministry has determined that Iran could
destroy the Jewish state with two atomic bombs.

Officials said the ministry and the Israel Defense Forces have conducted
simulations of an Iranian nuclear attack for damage assessment and response.
They said authorities have determined that two nuclear bombs that explode in
the center and north of Israel would destroy most of the population and all
vital infrastructure.

The assessment was issued at a conference on Iran and its nuclear program.
Deputy Defense Minister Zeev Boim said two Iranian missiles tipped with a
nuclear warhead could destroy Israel. Boim said even one nuclear weapon
could cripple the country.

Israel and the United States have been cooperating in developing a missile
defense architecture against Iran's Shihab-3 intermediate-range missile.

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)
Thursday, 07 July, 2005

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon this afternoon (Thursday), 7.7.05, following the
terrorist attacks in London, telephoned British Ambassador to Israel Simon
McDonald and asked him to convey the former's shock, and that of the Israeli
government, to British Prime Minister Tony Blair over the awful crime that
was committed against innocent Britons. Prime Minister Sharon also asked to
convey the Israeli people's condolences to the British people and said that
at these moments all of Israel expresses solidarity with the residents of
Great Britain, feels their pain, and sends condolences to the families of
those killed and best wishes for a quick recovery to those who were injured.
The Prime Minister said that the entire world must unite in the war against
terrorism the purpose of which is to murder innocent people.

7. Proverbs 3:1-10

Keeping the Torah and the Bible way of life brings a blessing in the physical realm as well as the spiritual one.

<<MERCY>>: The Hebrew word used here is "Chesed" which perhaps should better be translated as "kindness". We should try to tell the truth and acknowledge the truth but we should do so with compassion for the feelings and rights of others.

Go in the right way and in most cases other people will recognize your improved nature and good intentions. This is the bottom line. We will be judged according to how we lived. Giving other people a good feeling is also a part of the Biblical way.


God knows better than we.

God will lead us in the way we need to go.

We all have a tendency to "double-think" about matters when it comes to our own self-interest. The Book of Proverbs is telling us to do what is right and to let doing what is right be our main goal in life. Doing what is right also means looking after yourself and looking after your family,, community, and nation. This is the responsibility God has given you.

This is true. The Biblical way reduces a lot of worry, aggravation, and cause for sickness.

Tithe, give offerings, do what you should do with what you receive. God will requite you many times over. Not only that but you will also find that what you have after giving to the cause of the Almighty will go further, be enjoyed more and more truly be experienced as belonging to you. I am not just talking. This has been tested on a multitude of occasions and you too can test it:

You shall be blessed. God gave the Bible to you and the Biblical Way so that it would be good for you. Do not hurt yourself. Go in the Bible Way, the way of Israel.

1. The Price of Appeasement: Extracts from Steven Shamrack
From: Steven Shamrak <>
Extracts Only: For full text send e-mail to author
“United States has openly joined the Muslim war against Israel, and against the United States, and against the rest of the civilized world under the idiotic pretence of building democracy among people who hate democracy as much as they hate everything else that comes from the West, with the exception of money and weapons.” - by Zack Lieberberg.

Britain Suddenly Discovers the "T" Word. "It has long been recognized by the British Islamists, by the British government and by UK intelligence agencies, that as long as Britain guarantees a degree of freedom to the likes of Hassan Butt [anovertlypro-terroristIslamist], the terrorist strikes will continue to be planned within the borders of the UK but will not occur here." by Mohamed Sifaoui, the author of Inside Al-Qaeda. (Appeasement of Muslim terrorism has not and will never work. It is only facilitates further escalation of Islamic terror worldwide.)

Bush extends PLO office. President Bush allowed the PLO office in Washington to stay open for another six months. Congress has passed a law ordering its closure, but Bush waived the provision though he noted that the PLO has not met the law’s requirement to end terrorism. Previous presidents also have allowed the office to stay open. (This is how US is fighting Islamic terrorism and disregarding her own laws.)

"This nation will not wait to be attacked again. We will take the fight to the enemy. We will defend our freedom." - President George W. Bush, June 28, 2005. - It is time for Israel to do the same and to not allow any ’friends of Israel’ to interfere in our determination to establish a truly independent Jewish state.

At the end of G8 summit, Tony Blair made a point of announcing personally - one day after the attack on London by Islamic terrorists - the aid package of $3bn a year to help the ‘Palestinians’.
G8 leaders were not able to agree on saving world from global warming, stopping world poverty and ecological destruction in Africa and South America. But wasting money on murderous and corrupt thugs comes naturally to them.

US law prevents using taxpayers' money to fund institutions that support terrorism. This formality does not stop USAID from spending millions on helping Arab Palestinian terrorist organisations. This year, USAID has paid out $7 million to PA universities, where Hamas and Islamic Jihad operate freely. They recruit suicide bombers from among the students and glorify terror against Israel and USA.

Only recently, US president George Bush has agreed to pay $275 million directly to the Palestinian Authority. This will definitely put more funds in the 'militants' payroll.

2. Brit-AM on Hosea 9: Arab Moslems Liable To Bring Disaster to Ephraim
In our book "Ephraim. The Gentile Children of Israel" (1st edition 1995, 2nd edition 2001)
we pointed out that according to the Hebrew text of Hosea chapter nine "Ephraim" would attempt
a rapport with the Aram Moslems and that this could end in tragedy for Ephraim:
Hosea chapter nine


. "Evil is the Prophet, mad is the man of spirit":
This is translated in the KJ (Hosea 9;7) as :"the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad".

The said verses may well contain a hint that Ephraim will attempt some type of rapport with "the god of the prophet" and this will not turn out well.

8. BC for the Record
Barry Chamish has publicly admitted to being a supporter of the John Birsh Society.
He also believes that Beings from Outer Space are taking over the earth and manipulating
everybody. He has written a book on the subject called "The Return of the Giants"
details of which are listed by Google on about 20 different sites.
BC is a columnist.

9. "Abraham X" is Revello?
Remember "Abraham X" alias "Sonia" alias King Nebuchadnessar
alias several Other Pseudonyms
who wrote insulting lies about us and sent numerous harassing e-mails
to some of those whose e-mail addresses
had appeared in our Postings?
He never would offer a genuine identification of himself.
At all events the person officially responsible for his website is
Alexandro Revello of Italy. Additional evidence strongly indicates
that Revello himself is our culprit.
Revello is listed as an advocate.
He could yet turn out to be a front man for another party but the profile
of Abraham X fits what is known about Revello.
Revello was contacted by both English and Italian speakers but declined to offer
any explanations and broke off contact.
If the offences were not committed by himself he has only to say so.

Questions: Why should an "Italian" (in citizenship) Lawyer who also works (?) for an American
"Jews for Jesus" (sic) organization in missionizing to gypsies (sic) throughout Europe
have made such a major long lasting sustained effort
to oppose Brit-Am, to tell lies about Brit-Am, to deny the truth and perjure his existence?
Maybe BC and Revello should get together?
BC could use a lawyer judging by the libel suits he has been using

1. Moslem Hatred of Britain, the USA, and the Jews
"Annihilate the Infidels"
A Study of the Ongoing
Anti-British Religious Hatred in the PA
By Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook

{Excerptds Only]:
Less than 24 hours after the July 7 terrorist bombings in London, a
Palestinian Authority Television sermon called for the extermination of
every single Infidel:
"Annihilate the Infidels and the Polytheists! Your [i.e. Allah's] enemies
are the enemies of the religion! Allah, disperse their gathering and break
up their unity, and turn on them, the evil adversities. Allah, count them
and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one."
[Suleiman Al-Satari, PA TV, July 8, 2005.

View an excerpt of this sermon online here]

This call for the genocide of all Infidels is particularly striking coming
as Britain was still reeling from the London terror attacks - especially
since PA religious usage routinely includes Britain in the "Infidel"

The following is a review of some of this religious hate expression towards
Britain as reported in the PA media.

Britain is among the Infidels

"The Infidel countries under the leadership of the US made up an excuse and
justification to wage their dirty war [post 9-11 war in Afghanistan] against
Islam and the Muslims... Concerning evil Britain, which directly brought
about this corrupt entity [Israel] on Palestinian land. Britain forgot that
it is the height of terror and the height of hatred against Islam and
[Yusuf Abu Sneina, Iman of Al-Aqsa Mosque, PA Radio, December 28, 2001.

Prayers to Allah to destroy Britain

Dr. Ikrime Sabri, Mufti of Jerusalem, highest-ranking Islamic figure in the
Palestinian Authority, just 18 days before the September 11 attacks against
America in 2001:
"Oh, Allah, destroy America and its supporters and collaborators. Oh Allah,
destroy Britain and its supporters and collaborators."
[Ikrime Sabri, PA Radio, August 24, 2001.

"We shall rule Britain"- the ultimate victory is predetermined
"The Palestinian nation is the strongest on earth. Look at all the
civilizations! Look at all the states! Look at all the civilizations and
forces and empires. To where did Great Britain disappear..?
We [Muslims] have ruled the world and a day will come, by Allah, and we
shall rule the world [again]. The day will come and we shall rule America.
The day will come and we shall rule Britain."
[Ibrahim Mudayris, PA TV, May 13, 2005.

Britain hated because of Israel's existence
"Those [Jews] do not know what a homeland is and do not know what a land
is... Concerning Palestine, it belongs to us...
They came, expelled from every land, came to this country and
claming to have a national homeland on the land of Palestine, with the help
of Britain. That vengeance still stands between us and them; [a vengeance]
that will not be forgotten except by a coward or traitor."
[Ibrahim Mudayris, PATV, April 4, 2004]

"In 1917 of the previous century, Palestine was conquered by Britain, on
whom we place full responsibility for the events in this land. At this
opportunity, we put the responsibility on Britain [for the creation of the
state of Israel] and say: we will never forget our revenge! We will never
forget our revenge on Britain, who cannot escape the burden of its
historical, political and moral responsibility because of what it committed
on the land of Palestine...
"Britain [is the one] that promised them [i.e. Jews] the establishment of a
national homeland on the land of Palestine. Why? Because Britain resented
the Jewish presence there, in Britain, and wanted to be relieved of them..."
[Ibrahim Mudayris, PATV, May 13, 2005.

2. Jewish Teenage Girls Killed in Netanyahu by Arab Terrorists
Who Prefer to Attack Women and Children
+++HAARETZ 13 July '05:
"Teenagers killed in Netanya bombing are buried in joint funeral"
[IMRA: We stress again that terrorists prefer to kill women. Suicide
bombers on buses , in dining places or at assembly points such as shopping
malls place women at special risk by getting as close as possible to them
before detonating.]
By Ron Bousso and Roni Singer, Haaretz Correspondents, Haaretz Service, and

Two 16-year-old girls, good friends from Tel Aviv who were killed in
Tuesday's suicide bombing in Netanya, were laid to rest in a joint funeral
at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Cemetery on Wednesday.

Teenage friends Rachel Ben Abu and Nofar Horvitz were among four women and
girls killed in the bombing. The other two are Yulia Weltshin, 31, and
Anna Lifshitz, 50, who died of her wounds Wednesday. Both were from Netanya.

Dr. Joseph Lerner, Co-Director IMRA

3. Statistical Terms of Interest
From: Glen Todd
Average is the familiar "add them all up and divide by the number of items".
Mean (or median) is the one where half of your data points are above and
half are below. Mode is the one that we use here; the most common value.
Mode can NOT have a value that isn't represented in the set of data points.
Average most definitely can. Median is trickier, and depends on whether
you've got an odd or even number both of data points and of unique values.

Brit-Am Note: These terms can be important. If all the subjects counted are more or less
the same then it does not matter much what term is used but if there is great disparity amongst
them it does. We often use or understand the term "average" in the wrong way.
If we have 7 persons: One has 70,000 and the other six have 7,000 each
we add up the total and get 77,000 then divide the total by 7 and we have an
average of 11,000 but this would lead us to believe that most of them have
more than they do.
We have:
The middle number (no.4) is the median number and this gives us 7000
which in this case is a more correct idea of what most people have.
Most people people in our list have 7000 and this is also the modal
because of the figures involved.
If however we had:
Then the average would still be 11,000
The Median (Middle) would be 6,500
and the modal (most frequent) would be 5,000
Each of these figures are useful.
The Average gives us an idea of how much is spread through the total.
The Median tells us what the "middle" (frequently confused with Average)
situation is.
The Modal lets us know what the most frequent figures are.

4. Royal Descent?
According to a posting I saw recently:
Take any King of England and you will find that in the U.S, Canada,
and the UK there are probably 5 or 6 million people today who can accurately
claim their descendants. The same applies to the Kings of Scotland, Wales, and Ireland
albeit in these cases the number of descendants will probably be less
but they will still be plentiful.

6. Brit-Am Doldrums?
Visits to the Brit-Am Website are down.
Purchases of Brit-Am Publications have Diminished.
The Number of those giving offerings has dwindled.
Fewer people are sending letters.
We are speaking about an organization that at the best of times was sometimes struggling to get by
and with the help of a few good people had only barely managed to pull itself up by its own
We hope this is only a temporary phenomenon.

Despite the above we are optimistic at present about everything and a have a feeling that the Almighty is on our
side and have received signs to that effect.
You should feel the same.
Please try to understand us, identify with us, and work together with us
as you have done in the past or as others have done before you.
We have a good message and a true one.
The future of Brit-Am and its success is as dependent upon you as much as upon us, if not even more so..

We hope to shortly update the Website and offer new articles of interest.
Badges of metal and cloth depicting the Brit-Am Rose (without any text
or anything else, just the Brit-Am Rose)
will (God willing) be produced.
See the Brit-Am Rose on the spine of our recent publications or at:
I do not think that production will be overduly expensive and as soon as we have
the money we will go ahead with it.

We have several other projects (publications, advertisements, etc) in preparation
all of which are promising.
Keep Brit-Am in mind.

From: Steven Shamrak <>
Subject: Yin and Yang of ME Politics * Rocket from Gaza * Contribution to World
Yin and Yang of ME Politics.
By Steven Shamrak
Extracts Only

Just one day after the London bombings by Islamic terrorists, British Prime Minister Tony Blair announced, quite inappropriately, the G8's 9 billion dollars 'aid package' to the Palestinian Authority (PA). For the next three years the infrastructure of terror will receive extra 3 billion dollars a year from Western countries. Arab Palestinian terrorists are so happy and grateful for this generous gift! To leave no doubt of their appreciation, they unleashed the suicide bombers and a rain of rockets on the Israeli population.

Nobody pays attention to the fact that the same ideology of hate motivates Arab Palestinian terrorists in Israel and Al-Qaida 'militants' worldwide. Billions of dollars are flowing into the hands of PA terrorists each year. They promised peace at Oslo. But the terror never stopped!

In 1992, United Nations Security Council Resolution 799 reinforces the Fourth Geneva Convention of 12 August 1949 to all the 'Palestinian' territories occupied by Israel since 1967, and affirms that deportation of (any) civilians constitutes a contravention of its obligations under the Convention. The resolution does not exclude Jews. Sharon and his cronies are in the process of violation of International Law! They must be charged with the crime against humanity and stand trial! The silence and inaction of the UN has exposed the deep anti-Semitic nature of the organization and has nullified the Law, which was adopted with the prime purpose - to prevent Jews from taking control over the Jewish ancestral land.

We Have the Same Enemy. The Israeli Mossad has confirmed that the explosives used in London's terrorist attacks were the same explosives used by two British homicide bombers who killed three people in Tel Aviv's Mike's Place last year.

Suicide Blast in Israel. The death toll of suicide Netanya bombing rose to five. Among the wounded was a 6-year-old girl who was badly burned. The bomber was a member of Islamic Jihad from the West Bank. 40 minutes earlier, a car-bomb exploded prematurely in the Samaria.

Dates are Back to Life after 2000 years. Israeli researchers have germinated a sapling date palm from 2,000-year-old seeds found on Masada, saying their research could benefit future generations.

Control Bacteria Without Use of Antibiotics. A method for controlling bacterial activity without antibiotics by interfering with their communication process has been developed by a young Hebrew University of Jerusalem researcher Adel Jabbour. The method focused on disruption of communication between bacterial biofilms called "quorum sensing," which controls their collective.

5. New Age Ideology: Anti-Israel and anti-Jewish
New Age Ideology is a driving force behind part of the liberal
and libertarian trends of modern society. Even liberal Christians and Jews have been infected by
this movement.
The movement has strong Nazi-like tendencies as pointed out in the past by subscribers of Brit-Am
but the point is worth repeating in view of recent events
and the increasing power of New Age tendencies.
Alice A Bailey was a founder of this movement and her works are still studied by adherents of it.

Hannah Newman in a recent essay notes:

<<Zionism is also given attention by Bailey -- described as an
"entrenched evil [that] must be routed before He for Whom all men wait
[Maitreya, the World Teacher {their "messiah"}] can come." (Rays & Initiations) So it
should surprise no one that global enlightenment specifically requires the
elimination of the Jewish State. Here we have a possible explanation for
why the UN has been in the forefront of anti-Israel activity, and why the
New Liberals (both the "secular religion" of humanism and the liberal
streams of Christianity) are increasingly embracing anti-Zionism with
something less than intellectual explanations. >> Hannah Newman

Eyeless in Gaza
What the terrorists know that we don’t.
By Barbara Lerner
Extracts Only:

We think Gaza is all about Israel and the Palestinians; our enemies know it's mainly about us. We think we are encouraging Israel to hand Gaza over to Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah party, local Palestinians with purely local ambitions ambitions that encompass the whole of Israel, perhaps, but nothing beyond it ambitions that have nothing to do with us. Our enemies know that behind a Fatah fig leaf, we are handing Gaza over to Hamas, an international terrorist organization of global reach and ambition that is one of America's deadliest enemies. We think Hamas only attacks Jews. They ["our Islamofascist enemies"] know that Hamas is a main recruiting agent for Arab jihadists, not just from among the 2.4 million Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank and from the much larger numbers of Palestinians scattered in strategic enclaves throughout the region and the world, but for other Arabs too. We think Hamas sends all these jihadists only to Israel. They know Hamas sends a never-ending stream of them to Afghanistan, Chechnya, the Balkans, Kashmir, Lebanon and, most critically for us right now, to Iraq. And when our press insistently refers to Abu Musab al Zarqawi, the master terrorist who directs the foreign jihadists in Iraq, as "a Jordanian," our enemies laugh. They know Zarqawi has always called himself a Palestinian, and is recognized as such, in Jordan and throughout the Middle East.

To see what Hamas control of Gaza will mean for us in Iraq, we have to see it as our enemies do not just Hamas, but its parent organization, the Brotherhood, and its longtime partners Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and the Wahhabi and Salafist movements. To do that, forget Israel entirely for a moment. Look only at the terror war against America, and at the geography of Islamofascism that supports it. Place Gaza in that context, and its strategic location jumps out at you. Control of Gaza gives Hamas and its partners direct access to the land border with Egypt, as well as access by sea to terrorist supply ports in Lebanon and Syria, and from them, overland, to the terror training camps in Syria, Lebanon, and Iran and to the ratlines from Syria into Iraq.

The good news is that unlike the Biblical Samson, we are not irrevocably blind, only seduced and blindfolded by a mix of propaganda, ideology, and wishful thinking that prevent us from seeing reality. If we tear off our blindfold and call a halt to the Gaza retreat before August 17, we will save ourselves and our friends in Iraq much anguish, and save our Israeli friends and perhaps our Lebanese friends too. And if we do it boldly, proclaiming our determination to defeat Islamofascist terror in Gaza as we are defeating it in Iraq and Afghanistan, we will bring a final American victory much closer.

2. Some Palestinian Workers in Gaza Want Israelis to Stay
The workers also say they fear the domestic consequences of Israel's Gaza withdrawal.
"We know once Israel leaves, Hamas is in power. A lot of the Palestinians in Gaza are really upset about this because life won't be good for us," said Mahmoud.
With Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza evacuation plan drawing closer, and Hamas swiftly gaining power in the area, analysts have pointed to worrying signs the terror group will use its gains to impose a Taliban-like Islamist regime on the Palestinians in Gaza.

5. Proverbs 3:15-17 Verses and Commentary
"RUBIES": Hebrew "peninim" probably meaning "pearls".
The Knowledge of the Biblical Way, of the Wisdom in Scripture, is worth more than fine jewels.

People who go on the right path live longer, are better off materially, and are more honored and respected than they otherwise would be. They are also far ahead of those who may begin from a higher starting point but do not go along the same straight path. This is true for a person for most of their life or for a community or social group on the whole. There are exceptional cases and exceptional periods that confuse matters but on the whole this principle of reward in this life (as well as the next) does hold.

If you go in the Biblical Path you will be more positive towards yourself and others and this will result in a harmonious and pleasant existence with other people appreciating you and your lifestyle contributing to the welfare of all.

The 48-hour mass protest against the expulsion ended in the Negev
community Kfar Maimon around 11 PM Wed. night. Several hundred people
remained afterwards, and activity will be renewed next week.

The police opened the gates to the moshav this morning (Thursday),
allowing free entry and exit for the first time since Monday evening.
Most of the estimated 10-15,000 protestors left during the course of
the night, and several hundred are expected to remain today.

The protestors circled the gates of the town last night from within,
many of them dancing and singing with a Torah scroll, but did nothing
to clash with the security forces. Hundreds of people spent well over
an hour speaking "heart-to-heart" with policemen and soldiers,
explaining their opposition to the expulsion of Jews from their homes
in the Land of Israel.

One little girl, aged approximately 11, was shown on national
television giving an impassioned speech to policewomen, who did not
remain unmoved: "Could you ever imagine evacuating your own mothers
from their homes? Could you? And what kind of word is this, to
evacuate? We evacuate garbage, or enemies - but not brothers!"

The chant "Soldier, Policeman, Refuse the Order," was replaced last
night with, "Soldier, Policeman, We Love You, We Love the IDF." Some
demonstrators walked around with megaphones, proclaiming, "We're not
the enemy; we love you. Go fight the real enemy."

The singing and hear-to-heart talking contrasted starkly with the
scenes of chain-link fences and even barbed wire separating between
rows of security forces and idealistic citizens.

In announcing the end of the Kfar Maimon event, the organizers told
the crowds that in the merit of the 20,000 soldiers and policemen
deployed around Kfar Maimon, 1,000 people had succeeded in making
their way to Gush Katif last night. The police later reported,
however, that they had arrested some 300 suspects trying to
"infiltrate into a closed military zone."

The crowds - families, old and young, religious and secular - sang
HaTikvah and Ani Maamin (I Believe in the Coming of the Messiah), and
then began to disperse. Many made their way by police-supplied bus,
or other vehicles, or by foot, to Netivot, 7 kilometers away, where
they had left their cars on Monday night, when the protest started.

Ami Shaked, the security officer of Gush Katif - a self-proclaimed
non-religious Jew - told the giant crowds at Kfar Maimon last night,
"We will continue to light up the orange color around the world, and
this gives strength to the residents of Gush Katif in maintaining
their daily lives. 'Not by military might or force, but by My spirit,
G-d said' - keep smiling, keep lighting up, and that's how we will

A ceremony posthumously honoring five non-Jews who saved Jews during
the Holocaust was held today (Thursday) at the Yad Vashem Holocaust
Museum in Jerusalem.

The awards were bestowed upon Yevgenia Morozova (Belarus), Stoicheva
Stanka (Bulgaria), Feodor Melnik (Ukraine), and Steponas and Viktorija
Zrelskis (Lithuania). Relatives of the five received the Righteous
Gentile awards in their names.

The ceremony was conducted in Hebrew and Russian, with the
participation of two of the survivors - Sofa Kremen Grinshtein and
Medi Hillel - and relatives of other survivors.

Yad Vashem provided background information on the five righteous
rescuers. Yevgenia Morozova, for instance, risked her life several
times to host Sofia and Galina Levina and their family after the Minsk
ghetto was established in August 1941. Yevgenia obtained forged
documents for the two sisters, and pretended they were her relatives.
On one occasion, the sisters were stopped in the street by a policeman
who suspected they were Jewish. They asked the policeman to go to
Yevgenia's house, and she convinced him that they were her cousins and
were not Jewish. This was especially dangerous, as Sofia and Galina's
father had been a well-known pediatrician in Minsk before the war,
thus that it was likely that the policeman could have been a former

Stanka Stoicheva of Bulgaria hid Leah Farchi, a young pregnant wife
whose husband had been sent to forced labor, in her home in
Gergoviste. At one point during the pregnancy, Leah's life was in
danger, but it wasn't possible for her to go to the hospital without
the proper permit. Stanka, a midwife by profession, took it upon
herself to help Leah give birth with the basic means at her disposal,
and thus she saved both the lives of Leah and the baby, Medi. Leah
and Medi then remained in Stanka's house, and she took care of all
their needs.

Feodor Melnik of Ukraine saved young Sofa Kremen, whose parents had
been murdered in an action in August 1942, by hiding her in the the
attic of his work place. He later smuggled her to his parents' home,
and from there to the ghetto in Shargorod, which was under Romanian
control, where she remained until liberation in March 1944.
Immediately after liberation, Melnik was drafted into the Red Army and
fell in battle in 1945. Sofa later testified that Melnik also aided a
Jewish family by the name of Krasnyanski.

Steponas and Viktorija Zrelskis hid their friends Isaak and Pesia Katz
of Kovno, Lithuania from August 1943 until August 1944 in a bunker
they built especially for them under their granary. They padded the
bunker with straw and put a wooden bed in it.

2. International Christian Embassy Press Release

From the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem
[] FOR RELEASE - 21 JULY 2005


1 "For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,

2 I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.

3 They have cast lots for My people,
Have given a boy as payment for a harlot,

And sold a girl for wine, that they may drink.

Joel 3:1-3 (NKJV)

The Bible is clear about the fact that those nations that divide the Land of Israel will incur the disfavour of God. So, the conflict now unfolding in Gaza has serious implications for all the world. The Land of Canaan belongs to God! He has bequeathed it to the Jewish people as an everlasting possession as part of His plan for world redemption. To meddle with that which God has given is a grave oversight. The nations must be warned and even though they happily discount the reality of the God of Heaven, they will soon hear from Him and are!

On the other hand, the prophets have always spoken to Israel about her spiritual condition. Her departure from serving the God of her forefathers has always led to judgment, anguish and trouble within her borders. In addition the God of the Bible has always warned Israel about making alliances with foreign nations that in the end bring her to a place of compromise and land forfeiture. Israel is called upon to trust God fully.

The present drama unfolding in Gaza is therefore complex and cannot be reduced to simplistic deductions. As an organization that has a proven track record of standing with Israel, we do speak out today in the following way:

(1) We are convinced that Israel is placing herself in grave and serious danger by the "Gaza pullout". We are not persuaded at all of the peaceful intentions of the Palestinian people. On the ground in Gaza, where the majority influence is Hamas, they unashamedly declare their desire to remove the Jews from what they call "Muslim soil". They will most definitely continue their violent struggle from their new vantage point after disengagement. We fear that Kassam missiles will soon rain down on Ashdod and Ashkelon.

(2) We affirm that all nations participating in the present process to divide the land will eventually fall into the hands of the Living God. He has not changed and those nations like Assyria, Babylon and Rome that engaged in "this business" are now extinct. Why should it be different in the future?

(3) We lovingly call upon Israel to call for a Day of Humility and Repentance. The God of the Bible has always responded to your cry and will do so now. We will never tell you what to do because we respect your democracy but we feel that we must urge you to cast yourselves upon the God who has borne you on "Eagles' wings" for centuries. He will not fail you now. He will hear your cry when you call upon Him with all your heart (2 Chronicles 7:14).

(4) We urge the Church to come to a place of urgent and persistent prayer. Israel is in real danger. The avalanche of anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism in the world is alarming. Now is the time to rise up and pray. Pray for Israel's leaders, pray for wisdom, pray for deliverance and pray for Israel's redemption. Please note that we have often stated that to pray for Israel without reference to her spiritual condition is to disconnect yourself from the purpose of God. God is dealing with Israel and in the end He will have His way with her.

(5) We urge Christians everywhere to reject all forms of anti-Semitism and to pray for the Jewish communities of Gaza. These precious people were encouraged to settle in the region by a government that is now determined to remove them. Whatever the debate may be in Israel about this, the undeniable fact is that we are looking at a very real human tragedy. Men, women and children are being uprooted from their homes and familiar surroundings with very painful and traumatic consequences. They need our prayers and comfort.

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem is fully committed to the above position and always has been. We urge all our supporters to act now and help us fulfill our calling to be a light of love and comfort to Israel.

Russia and China either practiced military maneuvers together today being August 3rd. Or they will be in the near future I missed the beginning of the report. I think soon China will make a play for Taiwan. North Korea will attack south and Iran might make a move towards Israel or the US in Iraq. All these nations are working together. China and Russia have given Iran and North Korea a large portion of their nuclear knowledge. They are in cahoots with each other.

How the UK Gave Israel the Bomb

By David Leigh
    The Guardian UK

    Thursday 04 August 2005

Documents reveal that Britain supplied heavy water without safeguards against military use, enabling the production of nuclear weapons.

    Britain secretly supplied the 20 tons of heavy water to Israel nearly half a century ago which enabled it to make nuclear weapons, according to Whitehall documents which have been discovered at the Public Records Office.
Officials in the Macmillan government deliberately concealed the deal from the US, according to the files, which were discovered by BBC Newsnight and broadcast last night.
    Historians and politicians have been startled by the discovery, which sheds new light on the process by which Israel was able to circumvent attempts to restrict membership of the "nuclear club" to the great powers.
    Most of those involved are now dead, but Lord (Ian) Gilmour, who was active in Conservative politics during that era, said last night: "I would have been astonished and found it absolutely unbelievable." He said he did not believe Harold Macmillan or his ministers knew anything about the sale, which Britain permitted without demanding safeguards against military use.
    "They've gone out of their way to do it without safeguards," he said. "One would have thought that any reasonably educated civil servant wouldn't have dreamed of doing anything like this without consulting a minister but as far as I can see they didn't."
    A nuclear specialist, Frank Barnaby, said: "I had no idea at all the British were involved."
    The sale, in two successive 10-ton shipments to Israel from a British port, went to Israel's secret underground reactor at Dimona in the Negev desert.
    Dr Barnaby said the deal appeared "rather foolhardy" and added: "I would have thought a cautious government would have in no way been seen to be doing anything to help the Israeli nuclear programme."
    The primary motive for the sale, according to the documents, appeared to be commercial. The British atomic energy authority was able to get rid of a consignment of heavy water worth 1.5m, or 20m in today's prices, which it had bought from Norway but no longer had a use for.
    The deal was structured as a resale to Norway, which then traded the consignment on to Israel. This enabled British officials to say they had no responsibility themselves for imposing safeguards.
    But, according to the documents, the deal was concealed from the US, which was hostile to proliferation, because the Eisenhower administration might have insisted on unacceptable conditions which would have scuppered the sale.
    When Robert McNamara became the US defence secretary in 1961, he and President Kennedy strived to stop Israel from going on to build nuclear weapons. He told Newsnight last night that he had never known of Britain's behaviour at the time.
    "The fact Israel was trying to develop a nuclear bomb should not have come as a surprise but that Britain should have supplied it with heavy water was indeed a surprise to me," he said.
    "It's very surprising to me that we weren't told because we shared information about the nuclear bomb very closely with the British."
    The origins of the heavy water used in the Dimona reactor remained almost entirely unknown until the revelations of Mordechai Vanunu, a disaffected Dimona technician, in the 1980s.
    It was disclosed then that the 20 tons originated from Norway. But Norway itself continued to remain silent about the true nature of the deal.
    Heavy water, made by a laborious electrolysis process, is so called because it contains extra neutrons. It was a crucial element of the kind of basic nuclear reactor then being built by Israel with French help, which used natural uranium rather than the more advanced technology involving enriched uranium fuel.

5. Jews Kills 4 Arabs or Druse?
Unanswered Questions.
Thursday, August 4, 2005 / 28 Tammuz 5765

The Media reports that:
(Arutz 7):
A Jewish soldier who went AWOL from the IDF one month ago killed four people and wounded 12 others when he opened fire inside a bus in an Arab town in the Galilee.

Angry residents lynched the 19-year-old following the shooting. He was identified as Eden Natan Zada from Rishon L'tzion, a city south of Tel Aviv. Israeli media reported that he recently moved to the Kfar Tapuach community in northeast Samaria after turning to religion and becoming involved in extreme political activism, but the administrator of the community said he never heard of the man.

The killer's parents, worried over their son's radical change, said they had asked the army to take away their son's weapon but were told by officers there was no need to do so.

Israel media tried to link the murder with anti-expulsion protests and pointed out that the murderer had refused to take part in the planned expulsion. Former MK Rabbi Chanan Porat told questioning interviewers there is absolutely no connection to be made between the anti-expulsion protests and the murder.

The bus reached the town of Shfaram, which is made up of Christians and Moslems, from Haifa when Tzuberi, dressed in a Border Police uniform, opened fire and killed the driver, another man and two girls. He continued to shoot at people inside and outside the bus as the bus continued to roll down the residential street. The bus came to a halt and at least one bus passenger managed to disarm the gunman.

Police fanned out throughout Arab towns to ward off riots.

Many questions remained unanswered following the murder, which occurred shortly before 6 p.m., particularly concerning events immediately after the shooting. Police approached the bus in the town of Shafarm after the shooting and removed an angry mob from the bus and reportedly tried to protect the vehicle from hundreds of angry Arab residents. Five officers were injured as the mob pelted them with stones and bottles. Several people got past police, but it was not clear whether the shooter was killed following the police intervention or whether he died from the initial mob attack.

Unanswered Questions.
Claimed that Arabs were killed but other reports say the victims were Druze
who are NOT Arabs though they speak Arabic.

Report that shooting occurred after argument on bus: Not premeditated?
Shooter dressed as a Border Guard even though he was not a member of that
unit which is more of a Police Force than an army unit.

Claimed that the shooter was killed after being handcuffed by police.
Much of the event after the shooting was broadcast on TV./
Claimed that police refused to rescue shooter by mob and that only when
Jewish settlers threatened to invade the town did the police send in a special unit
to extricate the body of the shooter who had been lynched by an "Arab:" mob.

A lot of rumors, a lot of unanswered questions. Even appears to have been spontaneous
but elements on both the right and left are attempting to depict it as otherwise.

6. Conspiracy Theories are Mainly Dangerous Harmful
Lies: For the Record
a. A group named the Illuminati may have existed a few centuries ago
in the same way as tens of  thousands of other  different crazy groups have done.
As far as is known they disappeared. No proof of their continued existence.

b. Shabbatai Tzvi was a false Messiah
(ca 1664) who suffered from physical and mental aberrations
and advocated the committing of sin.
He  temporarily mislead some few of  the Jews
in his time most of whom were not then aware of his real doctrines or practices.

Tzvi became a Moslem when he was threatened with death by the Sultan of Turkey.
Tzvi and his followers continued to hold by their beliefs while pretending to be Moslems.
Their descendants were known in Turkey as the Donmeh.
They intermixed with a Muslim sect known as the Bashkirs who had also influenced Zvi
from the beginning. The Donmeh were never really very important and now are even less so
comprising a handful of small scale shopkeepers and laborers etc in Turkey
who have intermarried with Moslems. They also include a small percentage of lawyers etc.

Jacob Frank (c. 1759) was a follower of Shabbtai Zvi He and his followers became Catholics
and encouraged the authorities to persecute Orthodox Jews.

And that is about all. Barely A footnote in history.

AntiSemitic "Jewish" Conspiracy Infantile Nutcases are now claiming that everyone who does not agree with
them or smell the same as them are Sabbataians.
Do not be taken in by this rubbish.
There is no proof that Sabbataians even exist.

Similarly the Rothschild family  did become rich and important through banking activities.
So did many many others.
The Rothschilds are rich but not as rich as numerous other families.
The Rothschilds were a big family some of whom were playboys etc  but most were responsible
respectable (even highly conservative)  businessmen, and philanthropists.
The Rothschilds are NOT bad people (at least on the whole and judging by historical records) and are not
part of any Conspiracy to steal the world's money or whatnot or anything else.

The Rothschilds however ARE of Jewish descent and they DID help the British Empire
and British Dominions.
I think that may be why the Conspiracy people hate them.
Conspiracy freaks are usually anti-Jewish and anti-British
and in many cases also anti-American. Those advocating may well have
an agenda of their own, i.e. they themselves may be a "conspiracy".
Ask them to prove they are not using the same criteria they apply to
other people.

You do not have to believe me in anything. Just ask for evidence.
Brit-Am supplies evidence for Brit-Am beliefs. So should others.
There is no Santa Claus
and no Tooth fairy
even though we may wish there were.

The Lost Tribes in the West however, as explained by Brit-Am,
are a historical reality and we can and do provide evidence
that has not been refuted.

Jerusalem News-368

Israeli gov't admits: US Pressures Determine Retreat Policy

David Bedein, Bureau Chief, Israel Resource News Agency, Beit Agron Int'l Press Center, Jerusaem. Tel. 02 5300125

The U.S. Department has made it clear to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon: It wants the Jews out of the Katif district of Gaza by August 15th, with no excuses.

The Chief Rabbi of Haifa, Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen, came to Jerusalem and pleaded with Sharon to reconsider his plan to retreat from Katif, which involves Israel's obliteration of the 21 Jewish communities there, including 325 thriving Jewish farms and 86 synagogues and Jewish study centers

Sharon's answer to Rabbi Cohen: "This is what the U.S. State Department is demanding that I do, and I must do it".

It does not matter that half of the 9000 Jews who live in Katif have no where to go, with their relocation plans still left up in the air.

It does not matter that the Israeli government cannot offer more than two containers to each family to help them remove their possessions.

It does not seem to matter that the experts in Israel's security establishment are warning that the result of Israel's hasty retreat will be the creation of a new Islamic terror base.

Sharon is now making it clear that he is under pressure from the U.S. government, and that its that.

Yet one of the common assumptions over the past two years is that The Sharon government's plan to expel Jews from Gaza and the Northern Samaria and unilaterally hand the area over to an independent Palestinian entity had been an entirely autonomous Israeli decision.

Yet it can now be determined that the US government was behind it all along

In meetings with concerned American citizens, Danny Ayalon, Israeli ambassador to the U.S, clearly states that Sharon's disengagement plan is part of an overall Israeli-American agreement.

In late June, Ayalon met with representatives of the Orthodox Union, one of the largest contingents of United States Orthodox Jews, and told them clearly that "Prime Minister Sharon is left with no choice. He is doing exactly what the U.S. expects him to do"

In an interview with the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles published on June 22nd, 2005, Ayalon reversed earlier Israeli government statements, saying that Israel does not expect the Palestinian Authority (PA) to dismantle terrorist infrastructure until after the planned expulsion, mentioning that ending terrorism and anti-Israel incitement had been conditions Israel had demanded from the PA before carrying out the plan. However, Ayalon indicated that the agreement with the U.S. was more important than an agreement with the PA.

Furthermore, the Israeli ambassador asserted that "Disengagement has to be viewed in the context of Israel-United States relations…"This pullout did not follow an agreement with the Palestinians, but it followed something which is much more important, an agreement with the United States. Disengagement is something that creates a common agenda between us and the United States."

When asked how much the withdrawal depends on the Arabs, since the Israeli agreement is with Washington, Ayalon altered previous Israeli government demands that the PA control terrorism before the pullout.

This week's sudden announcement of the resignation of Israel Finance Minister Netanyahu was aimed at the US State Department more than the Israeli public.

In the final interview given by Netanyahu to the Jerusalem Post on August 5th, 2005, two days before his resignation, he indicated that the current policy pursued by the government of Israel should be perceived as a threat to the security interests of the U.S. and of all western countries, since it creates a terror base in Gaza, since the Palestinian Authority has incorporated the Hamas and other Palestinian terror organizations instead of dismantling them..

Yet the position of the U.S. State Department remains undaunted: Prime Minister Ariel Sharon must dismantle and withdraw any and all Israeli presence from every Jewish community in the Katif district of Gaza by mid-August.

Sources in the Palestinian Authority and the U.S. government confirm that the U.S. now urges that Palestinian armed forces be immediately moved into these Jewish communities in mid-August, as Israel forcibly removes Israeli Jewish citizens who have lived there for more than thirty years. That could mean that the Palestinian Authority armed forces will be allowed to pursue and punish any Jews who cling to their property as the Israeli army is retreating.

U.S. Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice also demands that Israel find a way to assure Palestinian Arabs some kind of safe passage that will enable Palestinian Arab residents of Gaza to traverse Israel in order to reach their fellow compatriots in the other parts of the Palestinian Arab self-ruled areas in Judea and Samaria.

Rice is also demanding that Israel allow additional arms and ammunition to flow to the Palestinian Authority, ignoring the fact that the arms and ammunition supplied to the PA between 1993 and 2000 were turned against Israeli citizens since the fall of 2000, with a human toll of 1,073 people murdered in cold blood by armed Arab terrorists. And when special U.S. presidential envoy, General William Ward, was asked two weeks ago by the U.S. International Relations Committee if the U.S. could account for the weapons that it had supplied to the Palestinian Authority in the mid-nineties, Ward's answer was in the negative.

Rice seems to not know or nor care that the Palestinian Authority and its ruling Fateh organization, remain at war with the state of Israel, with one purpose in mind: the liberation of Palestine, from the Jordan River until the Mediterranean Sea.

When Israel Minister of Defence Shaul Mofaz objected to Rice's demand for a safe passage for Palestinian Arab residents from Gaza to the west bank, sources at the Israel Ministry of Defence confirmed to the media that a screaming match occurred, with the U.S. Secretary of State clarifying that she will not accept "no" for an answer in this regard.

Another recently resigned Israel government minister, Natan Scharansky, confirms that the motivating factor for Sharon's retreat remains the pressure that he is under from the American government and the other democracies abroad.

Sharansky wonders why it is that the world's democracies, led by the United States of America, are so keen to witness the creation of a new anti-democratic and anti-western and anti-American Islamic state in the Middle East.

Questions to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv as to why the U.S. State Department would push Sharon in this direction have remain unanswered.

Israeli government officials do report that they are inundated with calls ad e-mails from thousands of American Jews and Christians who question the judgment of Israel's Prime Minister in regards to the inherent dangers of his disengagement policy.

The time has come to ask the question: Why do U.S. citizens not challenge the pressures that the U.S. State Department brings against Israel in this regard?

If the U.S. State Department relents on its pressure against the government of Israel, Israel will reconsider its plans for a hasty retreat from its Jewish communities in the Katif district of Gaza.

The ball lies with the citizens and the Congress of the United States of America.

3. OTHER MATTERS: Archaeology

1. The Situation Now
Police and soldiers have attempted to enter the settlements
and in some cases have done so but at present they are only handing out
evacuation notices and are giving the settlers 48 hours to leave.

In some settlements the authorities have been refused entry.

IN SOME of the mainly non-religious SETTLEMENTS most of the families are leaving
at present of their own will

Latest estimates:
The authorities thought that 80% would leave on their "own".
Less than 50% per cent of the settlers are leaving on their own while another half are refusing to leave.
Even amongst those who "agreed" to leave peaceably there are those who are changing their mind.
This is despite that by refusing to leave peacefully the settlers are placing in great jeopardy
claims to compensation, i.e. their economic future.

More than 6000 sympathizers (mainly youths and young men) have succeeded in
"smuggling" themselves into the settlements to strengthen resistance to the evil decrees.

500 disengagement opponents were arrested last night. Thousands attempted to join the
settlements but most were prevented by police and army forces.

Up to half the soldiers being sent at the last minute are refusing to do anything.
Rabbi Ovadiah Yoseph of the important Shas Party has ordered all his Knesset Members
to go to the area.

Media coverage is on the whole antagonistic to the settlers.
The potential use of violence by the authorities is always present in the atmosphere.

The intention of the government is to either begin with the evacuation BY FORCE of three settlements
in one of which my son and his family are present. This is planned to take place within
the next two days.
to leave the larger "refractory" settlements to the last and attempt to evacuate them next week.

The Government has approved the demolition of 20 more settlements
thus removing one of the hoped-for impediments to completion of the process.

Archaeological Digs at Beth Shemesh

From: "Joseph I. Lauer"
Subject: [ANE] Haaretz: Beth Shemesh digs in light of the United Monarchy

The following updates last week's posting concerning a Hebrew-language
article in Ha'aretz about excavations in Tel Beth-Shemesh. According to the
article, the findings establish the existence of a strong central government
in Jerusalem in the tenth/ninth centuries BCE, which is considered to be the
time of the early monarchy, the time of David, Solomon and their successors.
Dr. Shlomo Bunimovitz and Dr. Zvi Lederman, from the Archeological Institute
of Tel-Aviv University, are directing the excavations, which began in 1990.
1. An informal translation of the beginning of the Ha'aretz article
states: "A corner of a monumental wall next to a massive observation tower;
a large public structure of over 250 square meters; a subterranean reservoir
with a capacity of about 800 cubic meters of water in case of siege; an iron
foundry where dozens of arrow-heads were discovered among other items -
these are some of the impressive structures built in Tel Beit Shemesh in the
second half of the 10th century and early 9th century BCE." Although the
wall that surrounded Tel Beit Shemesh was previously attributed "to the
Canaanite Period (the second millennium before the common era ).... now it
turns out that parts of it were impressively rebuilt early in the Judean
The article concludes: "Relying on new developments in anthropology,
which regard border regions important as social arenas and a source of
insight about what goes on in the political and cultural center, [Dr.
Bunimovitz and Dr. Lederman] propose 'a view from the border' into the heart
of the Judean state. Even if findings are scant in the very center of the
state, in Jerusalem, in fringe and border regions, like the Shephela and the
Beersheba valley, it is possible to witness firm signs for the existence of
a centralized Israelite political body already at the end of the 10th
century and the beginning of the 9th century before the common era.
According to the scholars, this can be learned from the sharp change of the
character of the site during that period and also from the extent of the
construction projects unearthed in Tel Beit Shemesh: the massive
fortifications, the large public structures, the iron workshop and the
subterranean reservoir, could have been built only by public initiative
originating in the capital, Jerusalem."
2. Asked about the Ha'aretz article, Dr. Lederman replied in an e-mail:
"The article in Haaretz was based on our on-going research at Tel
Beth-Shemesh, which is now being summarized in a book which will be
published soon at Tel Aviv University Institute of Archaeology, Monograph
Series (it will be published in English). A preliminary summary of our
research dealing with the topic of evidence for the rise of central
political power already at the end of the 10th or early 9th centuries BCE
was published a few years ago: Bunimovitz, Shlomo and Lederman, Zvi, 2001,
The Iron Age Fortifications of Tel Beth-Shemesh: a 1990-2000 Perspective.
Israel Exploration Journal 51:121-147."
In response to another e-mail, Dr. Lederman wrote, in part:
"... the iron smithy at Tel Beth-Shemesh ... is the earliest known, and
from a very crucial period of transition from bronze to iron. We were able
to find such a workshop due to a very careful method of excavations that we
have conducted. My guess is that installations like this existed in other
sites, but yet were not found or identified.
"Indeed, the archaeological records do not point to any big industrial
shift until later in the 8th century BCE. This progress and development was
not able until the great superpowers revived, and especially with the rise
of the Neo-Assyrian Empire.
"Iron was known (and used) already from the 15th century BCE. It was
only in the 10th century BCE when iron became a daily utilitarian metal, for
daily use - not swords and spears, but plowshare, nails, hoes, etc."
"The incorporation of an iron workshop right at the time in the newly
built royal administrative walled city at the border with Philistia is of a
great interest - not just for us, but for all scholars and interested
"Our initial work at the iron smithy was stopped. We need to change our
methods and approach to deal with such a rare find. ..."

Subject: Re: More Brit-Am Appeals and Responses-Shalom from Bill Rasmussen!

Shalom Achi Yair: Let me add the voice of my wife Mai, my son Yehoshua and myself in praying for you and the settlers. We have called/e-mailed, petitioned President Bush, our Senator from Minnesota Norm Coleman [who is Jewish], Ariel Sharon and Knesset members who are against the disengagement plan.

There seems to be a conflict regarding the directive to remove the settlers. Women in Green says that pressure from President Bush has been responsible in implementing the disengagement plan by Ariel Sharon. This also was reported on the Jerusalem Post as well as Brit Am. Daniel Pipes said that it is a unilateral decision by Ariel Sharon and is not being directed by President Bush. In any event, we know that the primacy of the decisions lies at the doors of President Bush, the State Department and Ariel Sharon.

Brit Am members should pray over these 2 verses from scripture:
(1. Leviticus 25:23: "The land shall not be sold in perpetuity for for the land is mine; for you
are sojourners and residents with me."

(2. Amos 9:15: "I will plant them upon their land and they will never again be uprooted from
their land that I have given them, says HaShem."

President Bush, the State Department, Ariel Sharon and the Knesset members in favor of the disengagement plan need to know that the land is not theirs to give away. Any move to do so will only bring disaster upon their heads. There are multitudes at the ready who are willing to do whatever is necessary to prevent the partitioning of Eretz Yisrael. Perhaps HaShem will use this ugly episode to provoke an interest in the return of the Northern Kingdom and see the demise of the Arab interlopers who have illegally possessed the land given to HaShem's chosen people.

Couldn't have said it better. And my sense is that that is EXACTLY the message Israel can expect to continue to hear from the international community.

2. Evacuation of Kfar Darom Completed

IDF Spokesperson's Office August 18th, 2005

Evacuation of the community of Kfar Darom, in the central Gaza Strip,

Today, August 18, 2005, the evacuation of the residents of the community
of Kfar Darom has been completed, according to paragraph 22B of the Law
of "Implementation of the Disengagement Plan 2005".

Joint IDF and Israel Police forces began evacuating the residents of
Kfar Darom this morning and completed in the evening hours. Over 655
Israelis were evacuated from the community, 160 assailants were arrested
by Israel Police forces.

During the evacuation process hundreds of people barricaded themselves
in several areas in the community. The evacuation of the religious
seminary in the community was relatively quick, and afterwards the
forces completed the evacuation of over 70 Israelis who barricaded
themselves in the vegetable factory.

Approximately 200 civilians, most of them youngsters, were evacuated
from the community's synagogue, after repeated attempts by IDF to have
the people leave willingly failed.

31 soldiers
and policemen were lightly wounded; some of them were hit by the
substance presumed to be acid.

During the evacuation, an IDF armored vehicle accidentally hit a water
pipe near the community of Kfar Darom, and the water supply to the
community was cut off. Until the pipe was fixed the security forces
supplied bottled water to those in the community.

What will it accomplish? When (not if) terrorism escalates from the

acknowledged, but too late? Will the IDF have to keep going in,
suffering casualties, and accomplishing what?

suddenly embrace Israel with warmth and fuzzy feelings? Not at all:
what's going to happen is that world opinion will demand more, more,

opinion, claim her national rights, and defend herself.

My son and his family have left Gush Katif along with the members of the settlement
they were staying in. The US-induced retreat from the area is continuing.

There is nothing US-induced about this. And if you want to disagree, then I would like prove that this is US-initiated. I get so tired of every time something happens like this that it is blamed on the US. When are we going to take some responsibility, especially anyone who voted for Sharon?

This was Sharon's idea from the outset. He took it to Washington and sold it. He would be doing this whether anyone in the world agreed with him or not. He has used it as an excuse to get more money from the states. I am constantly amazed at how surprised everyone is that Sharon is doing this.
This, or similar, was in his game plan BEFORE he was elected. This is why I didn't vote for him. All he said during campaigning for his first term was 'painful concessions' would be required. Over and over I heard this. Thus, as someone who would normally have voted for the Likud representative, I switched my vote to Natan Sharansky. Coming off Barak, I frankly thought Sharon had plans to give a part of Jerusalem away. He may still have that plan. But bottom line, I knew he was planning to give land away, and so I didn't vote for him. Sharon created this whole thing. It was his idea from the outset and remains his. He wants to implement HIS idea, and he really doesn't care who agrees with him or not.

Some will say that democracy won through the use of well-trained officers. Some will say that the ease with which Gush Katif was evacuated shows that any settlement can be evacuated with a determined political leadership. Others will say the whole thing was a carefully constructed show from the start: The settlers knew the withdrawal was a done deal and let their youth let off some steam. They wanted to be portrayed as patriotic on the one hand, but were distressed over the collapse of their entire world on the other. The leaders were divided into those who called for resistance and those who opposed it. Sometimes both sides were embodied in a single individual.

PM: West Bank settlements to expand
Jerusalem Post

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon signaled a right turn Sunday, vowing to build inside the West Bank settlement blocs, even as bulldozers began mowing down Gaza's settlements.

"There will be building in the settlement blocs," Sharon said. "Each government since 1967 right, left and national unity has seen strategic importance in specific areas [beyond the Green Line]. I will build." Sharon mentioned specifically that "Ma'ale Adumim will continue to grow and be connected to Jerusalem," and that Ariel and its satellites would be a part of Israel forever.

Referring to the controversial E-1 plan that would connect Ma'ale Adumim to Jerusalem, and which the Palestinians argue would split the West Bank in two, Sharon said "this will not cause the cutting-off of Judea and Samaria. Solutions can be found."

Sharon was obviously aware that the road map called for a freeze of all settlement construction, and was cognizant that this construction could put Israel on a collision course with both the US and Europe.

Relating to reports Sunday that evacuees from Netzarim will be temporarily housed in Ariel, Sharon said he was not worried that this would hurt Israel's request for some $2.2 billion in aid from the US for disengagement-related development in the Negev and Galilee.

"Because of the settlements we can pray at the Cave of the Patriarchs" in Hebron, he said. If not for the settlement movement, he asked, "would it have been possible to renew the settlement in Gush Etzion; incorporate Rachel's Tomb inside Jerusalem's fence; or have Ma'ale Adumim and its satellites, Beit El, Shilo, the Ariel Bloc, or the security zone overlooking the coastal plain?

"We had a dream," he said. "Parts of it were realized, others were not." Senior Israel officials have consistently maintained that although the road map called for a settlement freeze, it had a tacit agreement with the US which the US has never admitted that construction could continue in the built-up areas inside the large settlement blocs.

“The core source of Islamic terrorism is Saudi Arabia. This is the place where Bush's millions came from.

Lesson of Jewish Humanism. A 21-year-old Palestinian woman injured in a domestic cooking accident stitched a set of explosives into her clothes and tried to walk to the hospital. During interrogation by the soldiers at the checkpoint, she admitted that she was on her way to blow up the hospital and kill as many doctors, other medical personnel and patients as she could. She had been receiving the same quality of medical help as an Israeli citizen, even though her home was in the Gaza Strip. (No one has the moral right to lecture Jews on Humanism! Those who do are not even close to the height of the Jewish sense and height of Humanity)

“Israel has shown the world that it can dismantle such enclaves with relative ease, despite the settlers' tears, anguish and occasional violence. Having set this precedent, Israel will likely come under increasingly intense pressure to do the same in the West Bank” - by Karin Laub, Associated Press Writer Our enemies are never satisfied! But it should works both ways. Due to the inaction of International community to privet the forced deportation of Jews from Gaza, Israel has received green light, and can now legally able carry out a resettlement of all Arabs from Jewish land now!

Most Christian Churches still anti-Semitic. Anglican Church leaders have voted to call on their member churches to reconsider their investments in Israel. The Anglican Consultative and the United Church of Christ have called on members to employ “economic leverage” against Israel, including possible divestment. (Why are the leaders of Christian church not so tough on Muslim states, like Sudan, sponsors of terror against Christians? Why they do not value the lives of their own member,s killed and displaced by the PA!)

China boom sets our course
By Tim Colebatch and Barry Fitzgerald
August 25, 2005
[Extracts Only]
AUSTRALIA'S economy is set to ride a wave of prosperity enjoyed by China, which is about to overtake the US as the driving force of the world's economic growth.

China's massive economy is expected to expand by more than 10 per cent over the next decade, the biggest economic expansion the world has seen.

Its already phenomenal growth will increase to even higher levels as market reforms, high savings and a vast pool of surplus labour combine.

China experts Ross Garnaut, of the Australian National University, and Yiping Huang, of Citigroup, forecast that far from slowing, as financial markets have assumed, China's growth is likely to accelerate as its economic problems recede, and its market reforms pay even higher dividends.

ANU economist Ligang Song predicted that China's strong growth in demand for resources would last for at least another 15 years, tempered only by sorely-needed improvements in efficiency and a gradual restructuring towards service industries. Professor Garnaut hailed China as a success story that had defied a generation of critics.

For 25 years, China has averaged growth of 9.5 per cent a year, easily the highest in the world, and increased its share of global output from 3.2 to 13.6 per cent. If the forecasts are right, it will overtake the US within a decade to become the world's biggest economy.

Mr Huang said China still has up to 250 million surplus workers in agriculture, and is already investing 45 per cent of its GDP (compared to 25 per cent in Australia). But he said that could rise even higher, as it gradually shifts from investing in low-yield US Treasury bonds to more rewarding investments at home.


China is now the world's second-largest economy, twice the size of Japan.

China as per cent of world output
1980: 3.2%
2005: 13.6%
Last year China generated a quarter of the world's economic growth, more than the US.

China's average growth rate
1980-2005: 9.5%.
2005-15: (forecast) 10%-plus.
On current trends, China will over take the US by 2015 to become the world's largest economy.

BUSH ON ISRAEL WITHDRAWAL: Yaron Deckel, of Israeli Television Channel 1, asked President George W. Bush the following question on August 11, 2005, at Crawford, Texas: "As a believer, Mr. President, what do you say to Jewish believers who think that God sent them to settle in the biblical Israel and they will not obey any decision of elected government?" President Bush: Well, you know, there are admonitions in the Bible that does talk about the role of government relative to man. And Israel is a democracy and democracies are able to express the will of the people. The Prime Minister is expressing what he thinks is in the best interests of Israel and the people will decide, ultimately, whether or not that decision makes sense. -

By Israel National News Staff

Shmuel Matt, 21, a British yeshiva student, was murdered by an Arab
terrorist in the Old City Wed. night, 24 hours after the last of the
Disengagement expellees arrived in their temporary quarters.

The terrorist stabbed Matt to death, and similarly wounded his friend,
in an attack near Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem.

The murderer stabbed his first victim in the leg at around 8:30 PM on
David Street. The young man suffered moderate injuries and managed to
reach the nearby police station, where he reported he was attacked
with a kitchen knife.

Police rushed to the scene and discovered a second stabbing victim -
Shmuel Matt - with stomach wounds. Medics tried to resuscitate him as
he was rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, where he died while
undergoing an operation. Police discovered the 30-centimeter
(12-inch) knife at the scene.

The first victim was hospitalized at Shaarei Zedek Hospital.

Both victims were studying at the Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem, not far
from the Old City. Shmuel Matt arrived in Israel about 18 months ago,
and was scheduled to be married this coming November.

The attacker was described as being in his 30s, and police set up
roadblocks in pursuit of him at all entrances to Jerusalem.

Days after the expulsion of Jews from Gaza, and while the destruction
of the communities there continues, rockets have already been fired
upon towns both in the Negev and northern Israel.

Over 5900 rockets and shells were launched from
Arab Gaza at Israeli targets over the last few years.

Shas party MK Eli Yishai said that the rockets fired at Sderot were
just an “appetizer” compared to what is to come.

By Hillel Fendel

An IDF unit in the Tul Karem refugee camp last night killed five
Palestinian terrorists, including an Islamic Jihad leader.

The five dead terrorists belonged to the Islamic Jihad chapter in Tul
Karem, in which one of them was a leading figure.

The Israeli force was patrolling the area when the terror cell
attacked them with gunfire and an explosive device. The soldiers
returned fire, killing the five.

The Islamic Jihad chapter in question was responsible for many attacks
against Israelis, most notably the murder at the Stage club in Tel
Aviv. Five Jews were killed in that attack. As expected, Islamic
Jihad threatens to retaliate sharply for last night's battle.

Arab sources report that an Israeli undercover unit entered the
refugee camp in a car with a PA license plate, and then besieged the
house of one of the terrorists.

Manhunt underway for J'lem stabber

A massive police manhunt was underway Thursday for an Arab man who stabbed 21-year-old British yeshiva student Shmuel Mett to death and seriously wounded a classmate with a large kitchen knife in a terror attack in Jerusalem's Old City.

Mett's funeral will begin at 5 p.m. from his yeshiva.

The Wednesday night attack came just a day after Israel completed its pullout from the Gaza Strip and four West Bank settlements.

The assailant fled the scene, after hurling the 30 cm long knife on the ground.

The joint police-Shin Bet manhunt for the suspected Arab terrorist gathered steam Thursday after it was determined that the attack was caught on police surveillance cameras positioned in the Old City, with the assailant believed to be hiding somewhere in Jerusalem, security officials said.

The two victims of the stabbing attack, who studied at the city's Mir Yeshiva, were rushed by Magen David Adom paramedics to Hadassah University Hospital at Ein Karem and Jerusalem's Sha'are Tzedek Hospital.

Mett died on the operating table in the intensive care unit of Hadassah Hospital just over an hour later, having never regained consciousness.

Mett came to Jerusalem from Britain to study about a year and a half ago. Rabbi Binyamin Carlebach, head of the Mir Yeshiva, related that he would get up every morning at 4:00 to study. He was engaged several months ago and was planning to marry in three months.

Mett is also survived by two brothers and a sister, residing in Israel.

According to an initial police investigation of the 8:20 p.m. attack, Sammy Weissbard, who was stabbed while walking with Mett just inside the Jaffa Gate on David Street managed to make his way to a nearby Old City police station to report the stabbing. Police officers rushed to the scene, on the edge of the Muslim Quarter, and found a second, critically wounded victim -Mett- lying on the ground with a stab wound under his stomach.

Mett was unconscious with stab wounds to his stomach area, paramedic Hanan Chovev said. Weissbard also sustained stab wounds to his stomach, but was conscious, according to paramedic Bosmat Ya'acov.

A hospital spokeswoman said Thursday that Weissbard was in stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery.

A large police manhunt was immediately launched for the suspected Arab terrorist and continued into the night.

At the site of the attack, a small memorial was set up. Nearby, vandals scrawled anti-Arab graffiti and calls for revenge.

The Jerusalem stabbing was the second in the capital in just over a month.

Last month, a 30-year-old Israeli who was sitting with his girlfriend at a popular Jerusalem promenade was stabbed in the foot by an Arab assailant who remains at large.

3. Israel sends condolences to US
Herb Keinon, THE JERUSALEM POST Aug. 31, 2005

Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom sent US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice a
letter offering assistance and expressing sympathy for the devastation
caused by Hurricane Katrina a day after a State Department spokesman said
that Rice had not received any calls from her colleagues abroad.

"Please allow me to express my condolences to you and to the people of the
United States of America on the loss of life and the terrible pain and
destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina," Shalom wrote.

"As we all stand in awe at the great force of nature unleashed on the shores
of the United States, please be rest assured that the people of Israel share
your sorrow and extend our hand in comfort and friendship," he wrote. "We
also stand ready to assist in any way possible."

One official said that Israel's offer of assistance was of a general nature,
and that the Americans have not asked for any help.

The official said that although Israel does not have any particular
expertise in battling floods, it does have a great deal of expertise dealing
with collapsed buildings.

Higher Death Toll Seen; Police Ordered to Stop Looters
NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 31 - Chaos gripped New Orleans on Wednesday as looters ran wild, food and water supplies dwindled, bodies floated in the floodwaters, the evacuation of the Superdome began and officials said there was no choice but to abandon the city devastated by Hurricane Katrina, perhaps for months.

President Bush pledged vast assistance but acknowledged, "This recovery will take years."

For the first time, a New Orleans official suggested the scope of the death toll. Mayor C. Ray Nagin said the hurricane might have killed thousands in his city alone, an estimate that, if correct, would make it the nation's deadliest natural disaster since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, which killed up to 6,000 people.

"We know there is a significant number of dead bodies in the water," and others hidden from view in attics and other places, Mayor Nagin told reporters. Asked how many, he said: "Minimum, hundreds. Most likely, thousands."

As survivors struggled with a disaster that left damage of up to $25 billion, a gargantuan relief effort began. Ships, planes, helicopters and convoys of supplies and rescue teams converged on the Gulf Coast, and Pentagon officials said 30,000 National Guard and active-duty troops would be deployed by this weekend in the largest domestic relief effort by the military in the nation's history.

With police officers and National Guard troops giving priority to saving lives, looters brazenly ripped open gates and ransacked stores for food, clothing, television sets, computers, jewelry and guns, often in full view of helpless law-enforcement officials. Dozens of carjackings, apparently by survivors desperate to escape, were reported, as were a number of shootings.

On Wednesday night, Mayor Nagin ordered 1,500 police officers, most of the city's force, to turn from search and rescue to stopping the looting.

"They are starting to get closer to the heavily populated areas - hotels, hospitals - and we're going to stop it right now," he said in a statement issued to The Associated Press.

New Orleans, a city of 500,000, mostly below sea level and reliant on levees along the Mississippi River running south of it and Lake Pontchartrain to the north, was a nightmarish waterworld that Mr. Nagin said would have to be abandoned while the levees were repaired and the city drained.

He called for a "total evacuation," adding: "We have to. The city will not be functional for two or three months."

Total recovery appeared to be far more remote. Officials of the Army Corps of Engineers said that it would be weeks or months before the city could be pumped dry and that it would take years to rebuild its thousands of homes and businesses, its streets, highways and other infrastructure, an investment that could cost billions of dollars and perhaps never recover the rich cultural heritage of New Orleans.

In Mississippi, at least 110 people were dead, hundreds of waterfront homes and businesses were destroyed, nearly a million homes were without power and dozens of casinos built on barges were heavily damaged or wrecked, depriving 14,000 people of jobs and the state of $500,000 a day in tax revenues. In Biloxi, looters rifled casino slot machines for coins and ransacked other businesses. The city of Gulfport was almost destroyed, and Biloxi was heavily damaged.

In Alabama, more than 400,000 homes and businesses were without power, flooding reached 11 feet in Mobile and hundreds of homes along the eastern shore of Mobile Bay were flooded. Florida, struck by the eastern edge of the cartwheeling storm on Monday, reported 11 deaths, and more than 100,000 homes and businesses were still without power.

Returning to Washington from a Texas vacation, Mr. Bush flew over the stricken area for a first-hand look at the destruction and at a news conference later on Wednesday said his administration was committed to the relief and recovery effort.

Rabbi Avraham Feld

Response to Islam"

A Brit-Am Publication
In Association with
Russell-Davis Publishers
Year 5765 (2005)

Note by Yair Davidiy:
"Mohammed Wept" represents the PRIVATE views of Rabbi Avraham Feld. They are presented for public interest.
The attitude of Brit-Am may be deduced from Brit-Am writings.
Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that the following work establishes Rabbi Feld as a foremost authority on his subject.
This work represents years of ongoing study of the subject matter alongside hands-on experience with Israeli reality, community involvement, and close contact with both the Jewish and Arab populations in Israel. Through the Maccabee Institute Rabbi Feld constantly comes face to face with general Jewish and specific Israeli experience. He lives here. His family lives here and he, day and night, is involved with helping people who live here.
Rabbi Feld also works with the Palestinian population and helps them, often serving as a go-between for those Arabs who wish to help the Israeli public in ways that they are able to.
As part of his life-mission Rabbi Feld is acquainted with numerous Rabbis, social activists, givers of social assistance, Israeli officials, politicians, social and politic commentators, and with the Israeli public at every level of its existence. For years Rabbi Feld has in fact been a source of inspiration, insight, and information for several leading Current Affairs Commentators.
Up until now the contribution of Rabbi Feld has been largely anonymous so as not to interfere with the activities of the Maccabee Institute. Now the situation has changed.
The message is important and is being delivered through the agency of the Brit-Am web-site.
Rabbi Feld has been a supporter of us from the very beginning and is a co-founder of Brit-Am.
Brit-Am works for the Redemption and Identification of all Israel and for the re-unification of Joseph and Judah.
Both sides need each other.
"Judah" and "Joseph" need to work together and this requires an acknowledgement of truthful reality.
"Mohammed Wept" is an answer to such a need.

"Mohammed Wept. Response to Islam"
by Rabbi Avraham Feld

A Bible-based MOVEMENT that recognizes Israel’s destiny…
A Bible-based MOVEMENT that understands the place and the importance of the pro-Israel Ephraimites…
A MOVEMENT that recognizes the need for the Ephraimites to be a part of the destiny of the Land of Israel …

"Mohammed Wept" By Rabbi Avraham Feld

"Mohammed Wept. Response to Islam" (Introduction and Chapter One) describes how the Egyptians are sueing Israel because more than three thousand years ago the Ancient Hebrews took Egyptian goods with them when they came out of Egypt. This reflects Muslim mentality. Under Islam women are severely abused and minorities (such as the Christians) oppressed.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Two) tells in detail how: According to true Islam Jihad must be declared by a central authority; Victory must be certain; The British and the Jews have given much including tribute to Muslims. Those who have given tribute, must be given protection. Jihad is no longer a military concept but one of spiritual rejuvenation. Suicide acts are prohibited except under duress and threat of annihilation. No such state has ever been declared.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Three) says that real Islam should recognize the Zionist Jewish right to the Land of Israel and gives quotations from Muslims who support Israel.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Four) explains that many of the basic ideas of Islam derive from Judaism and that in its true form Islam may most correctly be interpreted along lines consistent with Jewish principles.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Five) relates that the original doctrine of Islam has been polluted by foreign acretions.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Six) informs us that the Palestinian Arab Leadership wants primarily to exterminate the Jews and all other aims are secondary.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Seven) imparts the information that the Arabs do not keep treaties and cannot be expected to do so.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Eight): Diplomacy does not work with the Arabs, only violence. That is what they advocate and what they understand.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Nine): The existence of "Palestine" as a separate entity is a myth created mainly as a weapon to use against Israel.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Ten): While the Palestinians continue to support terrorism and act like the lowest type of criminal the Jews are in danger of self-demoralisation due to wishful thinking and misplaced liberalism.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Eleven): The Muslims are not interested in territorial concessions. They want everything. A War of Genocide is being waged against Israel. The Demographic Demon is a Scarecrow. Israel needs all the land it has and more. Most Palestinians would prefer to move elsewhere, to a non-Arab country, some would want to convert to Judaism if given a chance. Transfer of the Arab population is the most humane solution.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Twelve): The Palestinian Terrorists are murderers and nothing more than that. The world has a double standard. The attitude of the Palestinians towards Israel would not be tolerated by other nations if they were in Israel's position.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Thirteen): A military solution may be the only one possible. Israel must fight to survive. Leading members of other religions also acknowledge the right of Israel to exist. There are Neo-Conservatives who are pro-Israel, Christian Zionists, and Muslim Zionists. Christians should be Pro-Jewish and Pro-Israel. Yair Davidy and Brit-Am are working for support of a Greater Israel.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Fourteen): Repentance is possible for everybody. We can all change ourselves and the world for the better through prayer, effort, and repentance.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Fifteen): We must learn from history. In order to survive Israel must confront Islam. Unless the hate propaganda of the Arab side ceases war will break out. The Jewish victims of Arab terror were often very worthy people whose memories should be consecrated. We are owed an apology for Oslo.

"Mohammed Wept" (Chapter Sixteen): This is an Appendix that gives additional evidence that the demographic menace of the Palestinians has been exagerrated; points out that the USA also benefits from aid to Israel; Jesse Helms said, Israel is America's battleship in the Middle East; the media has an anti-Israel bias. God created the world and HE gave the Land of Israel to Israel.

Nineteen months after a U.S. Federal Court awarded $116 million to the
parents and children of a victim of Arab terrorism, the same court has
frozen all PA assets in the U.S. - $3.5 billion worth.

In January 2004, the Rhode Island Federal Court ruled that Hamas and
the Palestinian Authority must pay $116 million to the parents and
children of Yaron and Efrat Ungar. Yaron, an American citizen, and
his wife Efrat were murdered in an Arab terrorist drive-by shooting in
1996, near the city of Beit Shemesh. The couple's two sons, who were
1 and 2 years old at the time, have grown up with Efrat's
grandparents, Rabbi Uri and Yehudit Dasberg of Alon Shvut.

Yehudit Dasberg (pictured) told Arutz-7 today, "We're thrilled that at
least an American court knows how to deal with terrorism."

The court awarded the two children $30.5 million each, and $15 million
to the Dasberg grandparents, in the framework of U.S. terrorism laws.
However, repeated attempts by the Dasbergs' lawyer, Atty. David
Strachman, to effect the payment were thwarted. "The PLO knows many
tricks, and they used them," Mrs. Dasberg said.

"Finally," she said, "our lawyer was visiting here a couple of weeks
ago, and I suggested to him that he approach the judge and tell him
that it's no longer just an issue of our not getting paid - it's also
a question of respect for U.S. law. The PLO is simply trampling the
law. Strachman liked the idea, contacted the court, and within a
week, the freeze-order was issued. This is a major thing, something
on State Department level, because all U.S. banks are now forbidden
from honoring even a small check written by the PLO. This order is
completely stopping all their diplomatic activity in the U.S. - as one
of their representatives complained to our lawyer on the phone."

Despite the enormous amounts of assets that were frozen - more than 30
times the amount awarded in damages - Mrs. Dasberg is not optimistic
that the PA will pay the money in the very near future. "The
disengagement has had so many negative ripple effects," she said, "and
this is another one: It has emboldened the Arabs on many fronts, and
they see no reason to give in. They will fight it, and try to take it
to the Supreme Court... On the other hand, Bush wants to be known as
a great fighter against terrorism, so he will have a hard time if his
government retracts a decision against a terrorist organization. So
we will see."

Mrs. Dasberg said that she would give up her claim to the money if the
PA would simply agree to have the lands of Tzurif - an Arab village
near Gush Etzion where the murderous terrorists were based -
confiscated. "But they will of course never agree to this," she said.
"I would even suffice with the handing over of a mosque."

She noted that Tzurif is remembered in infamy as the source of many
cruel terror attacks, beginning in early 1948 ago with the famous
"Lamed Heh" - the 35 Jews who were cruelly butchered while on their
way to deliver food and supplies to the Etzion bloc.

More recently, Tzurif murderers carried out the Apropos cafe attack in
Tel Aviv in which three women were killed in 1997, kidnapped and
murdered Sharon Edry in September 1996 - his body was only discovered
seven months later - and committed the drive-by murders of IDF Dr. Oz
Tivon and Sgt. Yaniv Shimol in Jan. 1996, of Ze'ev, Uri, and Rachel
Munk in July 1996, and of the Ungar couple in June 1996. The late
Tourism Minister and IDF Maj.-Gen. Rehavam Ze'evi said in 1997 that
the village deserves to be "wiped off the face of the earth."

By Hillel Fendel

The terrorist who blew himself up in Be'er Sheva a week ago, seriously
wounding two guards, was released in 2004 as part of a prisoner
exchange with the PA - over the protests of right-wing groups.

The terrorist, Iman Hasin Muhammed Zakik, had been serving a 52-month
sentence for smuggling weapons when he was released. Under the terms
of the internationally-brokered exchange, Israel released over 400
Arab prisoners in return for hostage Elchanan Tenenbaum and the bodies
of three Israeli soldiers murdered by Hizbullah.

The Terrorism Research Legal Center, which released the information,
and the Almagor Terror Victims Association filed a court petition
against the exchange at the time. Their appeal was rejected.

Zakik was freed six months before his term was to expire, thus that he
would have been out of jail in any event by now. But, sources at the
Center explain, the "revolving door" policies that allow for the quick
release of terrorists from prison encourage terrorists to return to
their ways, and detracts from Israel's deterrent power against them.

This was not the first attack perpetrated by a terrorist who was freed
from Israeli prison. Almagor has documented many cases of terrorists
who were released in similar exchanges who returned to their terrorist
ways. "There were four big terrorist releases," said Atty. Ze'ev
Dasberg, representing Almagor, "and each one caused another calamity
to the country."

By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

The PA has about 40,000 weapons, double the number permitted by the
1995 Oslo accords, a senior IDF officer said. The number does not
include a huge arsenal of Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorists.

"If the Oslo accords allow 20,000 weapons for the PA [Palestinian
Authority] force, we reckon that there are close to 40,000 in the
field. I'm not talking about militant groups and terrorist groups,"
according to Lt. Col. Daniel Beaudoin, a senior officer at Coordinator
of Government Activities in Gaza.

He added that the PA does not have the ability to change the terrorist
mentality. "They've been so busy trying to blow us up for last 30
years, and they haven't been putting enough effort into trying to find
some way of building up a viable system. And this is our expectation
for the future….How are we going to bring about change in the
Palestinian police force? How are you going to deal with kidnappings
of internationals in order to release some guy who was apprehended
because he ripped off his car?"

The IDF officer warned that Gaza could "burst at the seams with RPGs
within six months."

Israel also faces increased terrorism in the north where Hezbollah
terrorist leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah has claimed his organization
has 12,000 rockets capable of striking northern Israel.

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) spoke to
Gaza students and praised martyrs, including suicide terrorists, who
die "according to a national order."

"They receive their reward in the Garden Of Eden," Abbas told the
students returning to school. He reminded them that martyrs and
suicide terrorists "brought about the withdrawal from Gaza." His
comments came only three months after he told the American ABC
television network that suicide bombings are a matter of the past.

4. Nancy: Sharon to Blame not USA
Subject: RE: "Brit-Am Now"-592


Henry Rhea that were posted in Brit-Am Now-591. With all due respect, how dare this individual infer that what happened to New Orleans was not in some way connected to the events in Gaza?

One reason might be that Judaism teaches that we are not supposed to speculate about cause and effect. Rather it is incumbent on every individual to repent, whether or not what they did or did not do had any bearing on what happened.

consequences that America would pay for its involvement. I have saved countless e-mails of pastors and rabbis warning President Bush of the harm that he would bring to America if he proceeded with his beloved Road Map.

1. The disengagement was not part of the road map.
2. It was totally an idea originated by Ariel Sharon. He went to Washington to sell the idea.
3. Plenty of people have accused Sharon of inventing the disengagement in order to
a. avoid the road map.
b. get focus off his own crimes.
c. provide the opportunity for unprecedented attacks against the Palestinians.
4. Sharon solicited funds from the US of his own accord. The US has become a nice bank account. When we are in need of money, all we have to do is come up with some peace-making scheme, sell it in Washington, and then request funds for it. The US hasn't held any money over Israel's head if they didn't implement the disengagement. On the other hand, they have held other, unrelated monies over Israel's head if they didn't do certain things with respect to the fence. But this was never the case with the disengagement. Sharon did exactly what he initiated, planned, and desired.

Many fail to remember that Sharon campaigned with promises of 'painful concessions'. I, for one, was not blurry-eyed because of his affiliation with Likud. To me, 'painful concessions' meant giving away land, so I never voted for him. The disengagement, or something similar, was in his mind before he ever took office and went and talked to Bush as PM the first time.

Brit-Am Comment: Quite a few postings have reached on the above subject but we have refrained
from publishing most of them.
Concerning the above I would like to remark:

a. Cause and Effect: Both the Bible and the Sages do say that more often than not bad results come from bad deeds.
The Book of Job speaks of exceptions that we cannot understand but they remain exceptions.
The Sages said that when calamity or suffering come upon a person they should examine their deeds.

b. The Disengagement according to Newpaper reports at the time was followed by the US administration and encouraged by it.
The strong impression was that any backtracking on the subject would meet with vigorous disapproval.

c. The Road Map
<<The U.S. State Department April 30 released the text of the "roadmap" to a permanent solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The roadmap specifies the steps for the two parties to take to reach a settlement, and a timeline for doing so, under the auspices of the Quartet - the United States, the European Union, the United Nations, and Russia.>>

This plan will lead to a Palestinian State that will threaten the existence of Israel. It also allows the interference of foreign elements
into the affairs of Israel. Why is the US Behind this evil plan?
The Disengagement was in response to this plan and may even be considered an attempt to pre-empt or derail it by proving that Israel is going as far as it possibly can and still there is no partner.
Both the Road Map in its intent and the Disengagement in its effects are evil.

d. Transfer of Arabs. Why is the US not prepared to subsidize the transfer of Arabs out of Israel instead of backing the expulsion of Jews?

e. The Disengagement was possible because very powerful elements in Israeli society backed it. Nevertheless it could possibly have been stopped
where it not for international pressure and the application of funds and support by the EU and others to strategically important sectors.

f. Sharon Needs Money for Israel and this was a way to get it? Maybe. I do not know.
Why should the US administration be prepared to give Israel money for Israel to hurt itself?
I believe that in the past the USA has been blessed for helping Israel.

g. Is Katrina a punishment for Katif? Maybe or maybe a punishment was building up for many reasons and
US involvement on the side of the enemies of Israel in Katif touched it off.
Or maybe not.

Education Minister Limor Livnat signaled a further swing to the right
on Tuesday, challenging the Sharon government to defy the U.S. and
start building more housing units in Ma'aleh Adumim.

"The great United States is our friend, but there are times when we
have to say, even to the United States, that we will act in accordance
with our interests," Livnat told Israel Government Radio. She noted
that implicit in declarations by U.S. President George W. Bush that
Israel can expect to retain the city "is the necessity and
acceptability of building up the settlement blocs."

Livnat said the expulsion of Jewish residents from Gaza and northern
Samaria presents Israel with "a window of opportunity" to strengthen
larger population centers in Judea and Samaria.

The city of Ma'aleh Adumim, located 3.5 miles east of Jerusalem, has
become politically significant as a fundamental test of different
policies of Israel, the United States and the Palestinian Authority
(PA). Israel intends to include the city inside the security fence and
provide contiguous Jewish presence from Ma'aleh Adumim to Jerusalem.

Expansion of the city also would prevent the Palestinian Authority
(PA) from establishing a contiguous north-south link between Ramallah
and Jerusalem, which the PA wants to declare as capital of a new Arab
state. The Bush administration has stated that Israel should retain
major population centers in Judea and Samaria but also has maintained
that their fate will be determined by negotiations.

Sharon, who is trying to fend off the contenders, also is promoting
building large population centers in Judea and Samaria while
refraining from offending the American government.

Communique: 6 September 2005


For years, media outlets have largely refused to report one of the most troubling aspects of the Mideast conflict Muslim intimidation and violence against Christians in Palestinian-controlled areas.

The latest shocking episode again made its way to very few news consumers: Late Saturday night (Sept. 3), hundreds of armed Palestinian Muslims crying 'Allahu Akbar' descended on the West Bank Christian city of Taibe. For the next few hours, the mob terrorized the community, setting sixteen homes and multiple businesses on fire, looting valuables from both...

Said one eyewitness: 'It was like a war, they arrived in groups, and many of them were holding clubs.'

The mob's 'provocation'? A Muslim woman from their neighboring village had had a relationship with a Christian man from Taibe. The woman was poisoned to death by her own family in an 'honor killing', and soon after, the pogrom against Taibe commenced.

Something tells us this incident would have made international headlines had Jews been responsible for this type of violence.

By Hillel Fendel

"We are leaving Gaza with our heads raised," the Chief of Staff,
Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz, said at last night's withdrawal ceremony.

Just this morning, a Kassam rocket was fired at the Negev border city
of Sderot; no one was hurt.

In the early afternoon hours, reports of another Kassam rocket towards
Yad Mordechai were heard, just north of Gaza. The Red Dawn
early-warning alarm system was activated, sending residents to their
shelters for a brief period.

As the Israeli flag was being lowered over Gaza to mark the end of
Israel's 38-year-presence in the area, teenaged Arabs threw rocks at
IDF troops near the demolished N'vei Dekalim community. Four Arabs
were reported injured in the clash.

During the midnight hours, mobs began swarming onto several
formerly-Jewish areas even before the last Israeli soldiers had left.

They mobs poured into N'vei Dekalim, Morag, Kfar Darom and Netzarim,
setting out for the synagogues and trying to burn them down. The
buildings are mainly concrete and therefore did not catch fire, but
black smoke continues to darken the skies above the former Jewish
towns. The IDF had hung orange signs on the 21 synagogues in Gush
Katif, declaring them a "holy place."

The United States, which takes credit for disseminating the concepts
of freedom of religion and respect for religious sites, condemned
Israel for its decision not to destroy Jewish places of worship in

Former Gush Katif spokesman Eran Sternberg warned that the PA's
enabling of the burning of the synagogues gives an "appearance of
legitimacy for any Jew to strike out against Moslem holy sites,
including the [mosques on the] Temple Mount."

By Hillel Fendel

Many justified the government decision not to blow up the synagogues,
and many were not surprised at the Arabs' violent response. Yesha
Rabbis Council: "This proves it's a religious war."

MK Gila Finkelstein (NRP): "The Palestinians had an unusual
opportunity to show their change by displaying their good will - but
they preferred destruction. More than they want a state, they want to
destroy every Jewish trace."

The Yesha Rabbis Council: "The burning of synagogues by Arab rioters
proves again that this is a religious war, based on a hatred for
Judaism, and not merely political hostility. This is not understood
by our wicked government, which is trying to turn the Jews into a
nation like all the others and detaches itself from Judaism. Only by
connecting to the Torah, Land and Nation of Israel will we deter our
various enemies."

Associated Press reported that PA bulldozers began demolishing the
synagogue in Netzarim early this afternoon.

Former N'vei Dekalim resident Amram Hazut told Maariv/NRG, "We're
dealing with animals, not people. They didn't even wait half-a-minute
to set the synagogues on fire. When they fired at us from mosques, we
didn't touch them [the mosques], even though our lives were
endangered. But for them, everything is permitted."

By Hillel Fendel

The IDF Spokesman's Office issued a timeline of central events that
took place in Gaza when it was under Israel's control from 1967 to

The press release did not discuss Jewish history in Gaza before 1946.
Gaza is listed in the Bible as being part of the Promised Land
inheritance in Genesis 15, Numbers 34, and Deuteronomy 7 (Rashi).
Prominent Jewish communities existed in Gaza during the period of the
Second Temple, and historical evidence of significant Jewish presence
there exists from the 4th, 7th, and 17th centuries. The remains of a
6th-century synagogue in Gaza were unearthed by archaeologists, and
remains of a Gaza synagogue existed until the 1990's. The Jewish
community in Gaza was evacuated by the British in 1929, when the Jews
were threatened by the Muslims who waged pogroms around the country.

3. Has The Palace of King David Been Found?
*King David's fabled palace: Is this it?*

JERUSALEM An Israeli archaeologist says she has uncovered in East
Jerusalem what she believes may be the fabled palace of the biblical
King David.

Her work has been sponsored by the Shalem Center, a neoconservative
think tank in Jerusalem, and funded by an American Jewish investment
banker who would like to help provide scientific support for the
Bible as a reflection of Jewish history.

Other scholars who have toured the site are skeptical that the
foundation walls Eilat Mazar has discovered are David's palace. But
they acknowledge that what she has uncovered is rare and important -
a major public building from around the 10th century B.C. with
pottery shards that date from the time of David and Solomon and a
government seal of an official mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah.

For nearly 10 years, Mazar thought she knew where the fabled palace
built for King David, as described in the Bible, might be - just
outside the walls of the ancient city of Jerusalem. Now she thinks
she has found it, and if she has right, her discovery will be a new
salvo in a major dispute in biblical archaeology - whether or not
the kingdom of David was of historical importance.

For that theory, the Bible is a relatively accurate guide, but some
question whether David was more like a small tribal chieftain,
reigning over another dusty hilltop.

Her discovery is also bound to be used in the other major battle
over Jerusalem. That is the disagreement about whether the Jews have
their deepest origins there and thus have some special hold on the
place, or whether, as many Palestinians believe, the notion of a
Jewish origin in Jerusalem is a religious myth used to justify
occupation and colonialism. Among those who subscribed to the latter
view was the late Yasser Arafat.

Hani Nur el-Din, a professor of archaeology at Al Quds University,
says that Palestinian archaeologists consider biblical archaeology
as an effort by Israeli archaeologists "to fit historical evidence
into a biblical context," he said. "The link between the historical
evidence and the biblical narration, written much later, is largely
missing," he said. "There's a kind of fiction about the 10th
century. They try to link whatever they find to the biblical
narration. They have a button and they want to make a suit out of

Other Israeli archaeologists are not so sure that Mazar has found
the palace - the house that Hiram, king of Tyre, built for the
victorious king, at least as Samuel II, Chapter 5, describes it. It
may also be the Fortress of Zion that David conquered from the
Jebusites, who ruled Jerusalem before him, or some other structure
about which the Bible is silent.

But Mazar's colleagues know that she has found something
extraordinary - the partial foundations of a sizable public
building, constructed in the Phoenician style, dating from the 10th
to 9th centuries B.C., the time of the united kingdom of David and

"This is a very significant discovery, given that Jerusalem as the
capital of the united kingdom is very much unknown," said Gabriel
Barkay, a renowned archaeologist of Jerusalem from Bar-Ilan
University. "Very carefully we can say that this is one of the first
greetings we have from the Jerusalem of David and Solomon, a period
which has played a kind of hide-and-seek with archaeologists for the
last century."

Mazar, 48, is the granddaughter of Benjamin Mazar, a famous
archaeologist with whom she trained. She got her doctorate from
Hebrew University, is the widow of an archaeologist and has worked
on and supervised dozens of digs on her own.

"Archaeology is technical, but you dig with a mind open to
historical sources, and anything can help," she said, as she
clambered over massive stones at bedrock. "I work with the Bible in
one hand and the tools of excavation in the other, and I try to
consider everything."

Based on the chapter from Samuel II, but also on the work of a
century of archaeology in this spot, Mazar speculated that the
famous stepped-stone structure excavated previously was part of the
fortress David conquered, and that his palace would have been built
just outside the original walls of the cramped city, to the north,
on the way to what his son, Solomon, built as the Temple Mount.

"When the Philistines came to fight, the Bible said that David went
down from his house to the fortress," she said, her eyes
bright. "Maybe it meant something, maybe not. But I wondered, down
from where? Presumably from where he lived, his palace. So I said,
maybe there's something here," and in 1997 wrote a paper proposing a
new excavation in the spot, which is in East Jerusalem.

Mazar is building on the archaeologists who went before her,
especially Robert Macalister in the 1920s, Kathleen Kenyon in the
1960s and Yigal Shilo in the 1970s and 1980s. Kenyon had found
evidence of well-worked stones and protoaeolic capitals, which
decorated the tops of columns, evidence of a large, decorative

David's palace was the topic of a last conversation she had with her
famous grandfather, who died 10 years ago, she said. "He
said, 'Kenyon found the protoaeolic capitals, so go and find where
she found them, and start there."' Five months ago, with special
funding and permissions from the Ir David Foundation, which controls
the site (and also supports Jews moving into East Jerusalem), and
academic sponsorship from Hebrew University, she finally began to
dig - finding evidence of this monumental public building dating
from the time of David and Solomon.

Amihai Mazar, a renowned professor of archaeology at Hebrew
University, calls the find "something of a miracle." He believes the
building may be the Fortress of Zion that David is said to have
conquered, and where he lived for a time, and which he renamed the
City of David. "The interpretation will be debated," he said. "But
the achievement is great. What she found is fascinating whatever it

Mazar is Eilat Mazar's second cousin - his father was her
grandfather's brother. But he has his own reputation to protect,
beyond any family loyalty.

There is a debate among archaeologists "to what extent Jerusalem was
an important city or even a city in the time of David and Samuel,"
he said. "Some believe it was tiny and the kingdom unimportant."

The site of ancient Jerusalem, stuck between two valleys, on a ridge
south of the Temple Mount - is very small, less than 10 acres.
Israel Finkelstein, a renowned archaeologist, has suggested that
without significant evidence of a 10th-century occupation, Jerusalem
in this period was "perhaps not more than a typical hill country

In his book, "The Bible Unearthed," he writes with Neil
Silberman, "not only was any sign of monumental architecture
missing, but so were even simple pottery shards."

Eilat Mazar believes she has found a riposte: a large public
building of that period, with at least some pottery of the time, and
a bulla, or governmental seal, of an official - Jehucal, son of
Shelemiah, son of Shevi - mentioned at least twice in the book of

5.Daniel Pipes: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq
From: "D. Pipes Mailing List" <>
Subject: #603: Pipes in Phil. Inquirer: If Iraq had not been invaded
Philadelphia Inquirer
September 11, 2005

Much would be different had George W. Bush not decided to invade Iraq.

In some ways, the situation would be worse:

The Iraqi population would still suffer under the totalitarian rule of Saddam Hussein. The shaky economy, car bombs and ethnic unrest that Iraqis face today are far lesser evils compared with the poverty, injustice, brutality and barbarism that was their fate between 1979 and 2003.

Regional security would be imperiled. Saddam Hussein invaded two countries (Iran in 1980, Kuwait in 1990) and launched missiles against two others (Saudi Arabia, Israel); the chances are high that he would aggress again, perhaps this time to impede oil routes through the Persian Gulf. Additionally, he sponsored suicide terrorism against Israel and maintained close relations with the thug regime of Bashar al-Asad of Syria.

U.S. security would be endangered so long as a megalomaniac ruled Iraq with the means to build and the will to use weapons of mass destruction. Hussein showed this capability as early as 1988, when he several times deployed chemical gas, even against his own people (in a village in 1988, killing 5,000). His links to al-Qaeda might have led to his cooperating with it to deploy WMD in the United States.

But, had the war not taken place, the situation in other ways might be better:

European attitudes toward the United States would be improved. Polling and other data demonstrate that the Iraq war inflamed an international hostility against Americans unprecedented since 1945.

Muslim unrest has been exacerbated by the war. A powerful radicalization has been apparent not only in majority-Muslim countries (Turkey, Jordan and Pakistan are good examples) but also in Western countries (such as the United Kingdom).

Domestic U.S. politics would be less fractious without the war. The post-9/11 solidarity had already frayed before the Iraqi war began in March 2003, but that decision worsened tensions, as symbolized by the heightened acrimony in the U.S. presidential elections of 2004.

To generalize, benefits of the war have been mainly security-related and the costs mainly attitudinal. The world is safer with Hussein awaiting trial in a jail cell, but also more divided. The Bush administration succeeded militarily but failed politically.

On balance, the war brought more positives than negatives; unpopularity and acrimony are a price worth paying so that the Iraqi government no longer endangers Iraqis or the rest of the world.

Brit-Am Comment: The US presence in Iraq and all that springs from it has strengthened the geo-strategic potential of the US several times
over and this is possibly the main reason other nations are against it.
It has also helped ensure future US economic well being and security by securing petroleum sources.
This does not mean that things could not turn bad or that disasters will not happen but it does mean
that all other things being equal the US is in a better position and so is the State of Israel
and so are other Israelite nations.

1. New Planet Discovered in Our Solar System
A planet larger than Pluto has been discovered in the outlying regions of the solar system.

The planet was discovered using the Samuel Oschin Telescope at Palomar Observatory near San Diego, Calif. The discovery was announced today by planetary scientist Dr. Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., whose research is partly funded by NASA.

The planet is a typical member of the Kuiper belt, but its sheer size in relation to the nine known planets means that it can only be classified as a planet, Brown said. Currently about 97 times further from the sun than the Earth, the planet is the farthest-known object in the solar system, and the third brightest of the Kuiper belt objects.

"It will be visible with a telescope over the next six months and is currently almost directly overhead in the early-morning eastern sky, in the constellation Cetus," said Brown, who made the discovery with colleagues Chad Trujillo, of the Gemini Observatory in Mauna Kea, Hawaii, and David Rabinowitz, of Yale University, New Haven, Conn., on January 8.

The War of 1812 had been an utter failure for the young United States. It was supposed to have resulted in the conquest of the main British territories on the North American continent, Upper and Lower Canada, and to clear British occupation forces out of the northwestern United States, what are now Chicago and Indiana.

Instead, the invasion of Canada had been thwarted entirely, British forces had invaded upstate New York, sacked Washington, burned the Executive Mansion (which retained these scars until the early 1900's when Teddy Roosevelt whitewashed and repaired it, renaming it the White House); the American government had fled to Philadelphia and American shipping had been blockaded.

Peace commissioners had been sent to Ghent, Belgium, where they negotiated a treaty that had ended this disaster, and the treaty was traveling home in a vessel when 1814 rounded into 1815. The British navy, not knowing this, sent a fleet of 50 ships carrying 5,000 marines to attack the underbelly of the United States, New Orleans. They ran into a surprise. An American army commanded by Andrew Jackson, armed with muskets, cannons and squirrel guns had fortified the city.
The British marines marched forward in a frontal assault on the American fortifications. They were mowed down by the Americans and broke ranks, fleeing back to their ships anchored off the Gulf of Mexico. In the end, they lost 2,000 dead, including their commander. The American defenders lost 71 casualties.

The spirit of the victory was captured in the song, "The Battle of New Orleans", sung by Johnny Horton:

And they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles;,
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
From the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico.

By the time the bad news of the Treaty of Ghent had reached the shores of the United States, the news of the victory at New Orleans had spread countrywide. Even though the American victory did not change the result of the war, it recast it entirely in the eyes of Americans.

After the British had sacked Washington in 1814, they had continued up the Delaware to attempt to conquer Baltimore. An American lawyer watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry, which defended Baltimore. He wrote a poem about what he had seen through the night, called "The Star Spangled Banner". Later, at an inn, he heard a drinking song, "Anacreon in Heaven". He shoe horned his poem into the melody of the drinking song, which eventually became the standard anthem at baseball games. In 1931, Francis Scott Key's poem replaced the knock off of "G-d Save the Queen" that had been the national anthem of the United States for decades.

In Troy, New York, the elderly man who handed out muskets and ammunition to the soldiers got the nickname Uncle. His name was Sam. "Uncle Sam" became the symbol of the United States, a country that decimated the enemies who attacked it, and could not be defeated on the battlefield.

This was what came of the victory at New Orleans. It was so effective at wiping away the stink of failure from Mr. Madison's War, that it developed a sense of national pride and spirit that carried the Americans all the way across the continent, bringing American soldiers to Mexico City in 1848. Americans carried in them a sense of "Manifest Destiny", a sense that G-d had graced the brow of America with His blessings and that it was Americans' job to bring those blessings to the world.

The day came that Americans came to liberate Europe from its oppressors. American soldiers had bases in Britain, the nation that had attacked New Orleans, and the British were grateful for them. By the time I was a child 50 years ago, the War of 1812 was lauded in schoolbooks as "A Second War of Independence". This was the effect of the Battle of New Orleans fought in January of 1815.

The belief that G-d had blessed America, so eloquently expressed in the song "America the Beautiful", was real. Not since
1815, has a foreign force occupied American soil, with the exception of the Japanese occupation of a number of islands off Alaska, and some American territories in the Pacific. The tragedies that seemed to hit the world with alarming frequency seemed not to hit America. America was the land of opportunity where tempest tossed millions poured in and sought refuge. And by and large, they prospered.

As a child, I grew up in the richest nation on earth, the richest nation that had ever existed in the history of Man. It seemed to all go wrong during the years that the American army was sent to Vietnam. A sense of purpose had been lost or misplaced, and the American military, the vaunted mighty force that had defeated all before it, was itself defeated.

The years of my young adulthood were years during which basic ideals and national purposes were debated and argued, and a different path was chosen from the one that had previously guided Americans, both in morals and in their view of the world. For a short time in 1991, Americans reclaimed their pride, defeating an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, and for a shorter time after that, in 2003, Americans proved themselves again, this time ending the regime of a former ally, Saddam Hussein.

However, tragedies of historic proportions have now struck the United States. Half of American marriages end in divorce, leaving a trail of bitterness, uncertainty, and emotionally wounded parents and children. Parents now fear for the safety of their offspring, lest someone, often an estranged spouse, will kidnap them and just drive off into the sunset - and into a photograph on a milk carton.

Medical care in America, the best generally, is also the most expensive, necessitating medical insurance to obtain decent care. Nearly half of the American population does not have this insurance. Fifty years ago, a single individual could, by working one or two jobs, support a family of three children in many parts of the United States. This meant that the father could go to work and the mother could stay home as a homemaker and full-time mother.

Today, this is no longer true. Unless one of the parents is making very good money, both generally have to work to support even a family of two children. In spite of what appears to be fantastic material prosperity, the standard of living in America, as defined by the need to go out into the job market and make money, has declined.

On top of all this, there is now the specter of terrorism stalking the land. In 1993, an attempt was made to destroy the World Trade Center in New York City. In 1995, the federal office building in Oklahoma City was destroyed. In 2001, the World Trade Center in New York was targeted again, this time by jets hitting the building in the air. The two towers that comprised the most visible portion of the World Trade Center collapsed in front of millions of TV viewers worldwide.

Terrible storms have lashed America since 1991. Some have pointed out the eerie coincidence of when these storms have struck - often when American administrations were forcing Israel to concede territory or when American officials were meeting with enemies of the Jewish state. I would ask a reader to take note of these coincidences. But I believe the matter goes far beyond this.

It is my own conclusion that a Divine blessing was bestowed on America in 1815. Its effects were not immediate - they continued to echo through the decades until 1963, through civil war, through industrial growth and industrial disputes, through economic panics, recessions and depressions, and through two world wars that brought America to the apex of its power and real prosperity.

It is also my own conclusion that Hurricane Katrina, in destroying the city of New Orleans, signaled something far deeper than the destruction it wrought. Hurricane Katrina was not a tragedy because thousands of lives were lost, even though thousands of lives were lost; not because oil production was halted and energy prices have been caused to spike, even though oil production and refining was halted and energy prices have been caused to spike - something that will cause inestimable damage to America's economy.

Hurricane Katrina was a tragedy not because thousands of people have been made homeless, even though thousands have been made homeless and destitute; not because the Federal Emergency Management Administration - a bloated and over-funded bureaucracy - has been shown to be helpless and inadequate, even though this has in fact been the case. This hurricane was a tragedy not because the American government was guilty of criminal negligence in refusing to prepare New Orleans for a foreseeable disaster, even though it has been so negligent.


Hurricane Katrina was a tragedy that will sink slowly into the American psyche because, in my opinion, it signals the cancellation of the blessing granted America in 1815 at the Battle of New Orleans 190 years earlier. It does not take a brilliant mind to conclude that New Orleans was a den of iniquity and sin whose cup was full long before this particular storm struck. The city did not have the nickname "The Big Easy" because of the way eggs were made there.

There had been warnings with other storms, and the local government had paid heed, at least to the natural threats that a repeat of these storms could bring to the city. Plans had been drawn up to fortify the levees, among other things. But the money for these plans was diverted elsewhere, to a quagmire in Mesopotamia, where only body bags measure America's progress in a part of the world that has no use for the ideals that Americans have learned to hold dear.

But why now? Why this storm?

Two possible reasons stand out.

One was that this storm caused the cancellation of a "Gay Pride" bash scheduled to take place over the Labor Day weekend in New Orleans. It may not be politically correct to point this out but in the Bible, homosexual behavior is called an abomination. I do not say this, the Bible does. The Bible is the closest clue we have to G-d's Word. And Americans have sung for decades about the blessings that G-d has bestowed upon them.

A second possible reason, in addition to the one cited above, is the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif. While the act was done by Israeli troops, and made to look like an Israeli initiative, it was done with the full backing of, and eventually under the pressure of the American leadership. There is another principle enunciated in the Bible - the people pay for the sins of their leaders.

Naturally, others have gotten into the Divine punishment act. The Muslims claim this is punishment for not following the words of Allah and for persecuting Arabs, and other folks make other claims as well, raising issues of global warming, etc.

That's okay. But there are too many eerie similarities between the expulsion of their people from their homes on a massive scale in Gush Katif and New Orleans to be ignored blithely, though many will ignore this and criticize those who don't.

That's also okay. One ignores G-d's warning at his peril, and one shoves G-d from the center of His creation at his peril.

I may be wrong in this analysis. But I know that I have least raised the right kind of question. And because I once lived in America, and once thrilled to her national anthem and sight of her flag, I can only say, "G-d Save America".

3. Islam Not So Innocent?
From: Tamar Yonah <>
Subject: Fwd: Tamar Yonah-show with Rabbi Feld

Shalom Yair,
Please read this to Rabbi Feld, it is a comment from a listener.


Sorry Tamar, but you and your guest are suffering from excessive wishful thinking in believing that a moderate islam can replace the rabid,violent cult that represents most of present day islam.

I'm not an islamic scholar, but since 9-11 I've been trying to learn what these people believe in.

The disturbing conclusion I've come to is that the wahabbis and other extremists have more authority from the quran and hadiths than the moderates. The few verses supporting peace in the quran come from the early years when Muhammad started his religion. Once he felt strong enough, he changed islam into a warrior cult with the goal of conquering the world.

With all the contradictory changes Muhammad made during his reign, a principle of abrogation was applied by islamic scholars, making the later verse the right one if it conflicted with an earlier verse.

Therefore, those early peaceful quranic verses cited by Sheik Pollazzi and other moderates were pushed aside by the jihad verses that came later.

If you have Rabbi Feld on again as a guest, could you ask him why islam became increasingly more violent as they continued to lose wars to Israel? Most clerics in the arab world were able to interpret their losses as caused by lack of faith.

I get the impression that the Rabbi sees the current jihad as a modern phenomenon. But the fact is it started when Muhammad took up the sword to spread his cult. Since then the active jihad has ebbed and flowed depending on economic fortunes.

The problem in our time is that they have billions of dollars of oil revenues to devote to expanding the "house of islam".

The advocates of "peak oil", who believe the middle-east is running out of oil have the only true answer. Once saudi arabia runs out of oil money to finance jihad and dawa the offensive jihad will go into another dormant stage.

Yours sincerely

Ralph from Canada

4. Texans Urged to Leave Home
Source: The Scotsman
Extracts Only:

HURRICANE Rita strengthened to the most powerful "Category 5" storm last night as more than a million people in the path of its 165mph winds were ordered to flee their homes in Houston and the surrounding coastline.

Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the Gulf Coast region and caused catastrophic flooding in New Orleans just three weeks ago, was a Category 4 storm when it hit land, after dropping from Category 5.

Rita, which picked up strength as it travelled across the Gulf of Mexico, was heading directly for the centre of Texas, threatening widespread destruction to mirror that wrought by its sister storm in Louisiana and Mississippi late last month. Yesterday the death toll from Katrina rose to 1,037.

New Orleans residents have also been told to leave as heavy rains brought by the storm could cause renewed flooding in a city only just pumped dry.

About a million people in the Houston-Galveston area were told to get out by dawn tomorrow, said a spokesman for Bill White, the mayor of Houston. Galveston County, with a population of 267,000, was ordered to be evacuated, along with low-lying, flood-prone areas of Houston, which at its lowest point is just 6ft above sea level.

George Bush, the US president, yesterday pleaded with people to comply with mandatory evacuation orders.

"I urge the citizens to listen carefully to the instructions provided by state and local authorities and follow them," Mr Bush said. "We hope and pray that Hurricane Rita will not be a devastating storm, but we have got to be ready for the worst."

With Rita's landfall expected late tomorrow night or in the early hours of Saturday, possibly at Galveston near Houston, tens of thousands of homeowners and businesses were racing against the clock to board up their properties and move away from coastal areas vulnerable to a storm surge of up to 18ft.

It is not the first time Galveston has had to prepare for the worst. On 8 September, 1900, it was the scene of the deadliest natural disaster in US history when a hurricane killed more than 6,000 people in the city.

"A Category 4 or 5 storm will test all of us," said Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, yesterday. Mr Perry, who has already asked Mr Bush to declare his state a disaster zone in advance of Rita's arrival, added: "We are as prepared as humanly possible for this storm. Katrina got everyone's attention. Particularly after what happened with Katrina, Texas will be taking any warnings very seriously."

Last night, as residents headed out of Texas, the military was heading in. The 300-mile stretch of I-10 highway that leads from New Orleans to Houston was packed with convoys of National Guard Humvees and US Army trucks that have spent the last three weeks assisting the Hurricane Katrina disaster effort.

They were accompanied by military petrol tankers and lorries carrying rations and water.

Officials in neighbouring Louisiana were also watching the storm's projected path nervously. They warn that even if Rita makes landfall in eastern Texas, it could still send enough rain across the state border to breach the levee flood defence system protecting New Orleans and send three or four feet of floodwater back into the city.

On Tuesday, New Orleans was declared "largely dry". More than a trillion gallons of toxic floodwater have been pumped out in the three weeks since Katrina's storm surge first broke the levees. The army has brought in an extra 800 giant sandbags weighing 6,000lb to 15,000lb each and has ordered 2,500 more to shore up low spots on the levees and plug any new breaches.

Preparations underway in Texas last night included the mandatory evacuation of nursing-home residents and hospital patients, the closure of schools and businesses, and the opening of storm shelters that will cater for local residents and many of the quarter of a million Katrina evacuees who fled there from New Orleans.

Many lessons have been learned from what was widely seen as a botched response to the threat of Katrina, and officials are taking care to ensure that the mistakes are not repeated.

In New Orleans, buses that took five days to arrive to evacuate people from New Orleans Convention Centre after Katrina "were there in minutes" on Tuesday, according to Ray Nagin, the city's mayor, who has called for a new evacuation one day after telling displaced residents that they could return.

Before Katrina, there was no military presence to help with the relief effort and help maintain order after the storm had passed. This time, National Guard troops still on the ground in Louisiana and Mississippi are on standby to assist again with Hurricane Rita.

Mr Perry has asked that more than 1,000 of his state's troops be recalled and 20 military helicopters will be available.

Experts at the National Hurricane Centre in Miami say it is still too early to predict with any certainly where Rita, the ninth hurricane of the 2005 season, will strike.

However, the cone of probability is narrowing by the hour and a direct hit somewhere along the Texas coastline, rather than in Mexico or Louisiana, is the most likely eventuality.

Another unwelcome consequence of Rita's approach is a further hike in petrol prices.

More than 130 drilling rigs are in the Gulf of Mexico, and a quarter of the country's oil is refined in Texas.

The threat of disruption to production and supply forced the price of a barrel of crude oil up by $1.15 to $67.35, close to its three-week high.

Meanwhile, the International Monetary Fund said yesterday that the direct toll on US economic growth from Hurricane Katrina would be modest, although higher energy prices would still have an impact.

Since we are working for the good of their peoples and are certainly more deserving
than the Palestinian terror organizations who have received their support
we think this lack of consideration to be most regrettable.

Seriously, Brit-Am is grateful for whatever support it receives
and people do help us in moderate ways that nevertheless are vital to our existence
and keep us going.
May all they help us be blessed by the Almighty God of Israel
along with all the peoples of Israel.
We need additional offerings and publication orders to maintain our activities,

1. Fourteen Terrorist Attacks a Day against Israel

The Israeli Prime Minister's Office has released the following:

Today (Thursday), 29.9.05, will mark five years since the start of the current round of Palestinian violence, during which 26,159 terrorist attacks were perpetrated against Israeli targets, in which 1,060 Israelis were murdered and 6,089 were wounded.

That comes out on average to 5,232 attacks a year or 14.33 per day, every single day. One can only speculate how many more thousands of attacks were prevented. For anyone not living in Israel or Iraq, this figure staggers the imagination. (September 29, 2005) Permalink

2. Mostly Veteran Front-Line Soldiers Refused to Expel Fellow Jews.
The weekly Hebrew-language newspaper "BeSheVA" published by the Arutz-7 people
(6.10.05) has an article (p.14 ff) by Yochanan Markus and Chagit Rothenberg
examining the rate of refusal to obey orders and participate in the recent expulsion of Jews from
Gush Katif.

The crack front-line unit "Golani" which is also the largest body of elite-grade troops (Paratroop level) in the Israeli Army
had a refusal rate of close to 48%;
the Paratroopers had a rate of ca 25%
Givati (front-line infantry parallel to Golani) ca 20%
Officer and NCO Course cadets ca. 20 or more %.
These are all front-line units.
Within the units themselves there were differences between the different Divisions
and in some cases an overwhelming number of the soldiers refused to have anything in any way to do with
the matter.
The more veteran and experienced the soldiers the higher the rate of refusal.
This is not surprising since it is well known that new fresh recruits to the armed forces (in every army, all over the world)
initially lose much of their individuality and can often be expected to do almost anything they are told to.

The IDF preferred not to publicize this phenomenon.
The front-line units were quietly directed to other duties
in order to avoid unnecessary and destructive confrontation.
In practice those
who were used to evict Jewish citizens came mainly from
the Police Forces and Border Guards, professional (full-time) soldiers from
rearbase service units, and pilot cadets.

Subject: Updates & Corrections: CNN, AP, BBC


[]A new report in the Jewish Political Studies Review finds Australian media coverage of Israel remains strongly biased in favor of the Palestinian narrative. Tzvi Fleischer finds that the British media's anti-Israel bias has a way of seeping 'down under' via syndication, and notes some outright anti-Semitic themes in Australian media, including these claims:

Jewish power, especially financial power, closes off debate about the Middle East in Australia.
Israel is a demonically evil or Nazi state and the source of most of the world's problems.
U.S. policy is the result of Jewish neoconservatives.
Anti-Semitism results from Jewish activities and behavior, especially support for Israel.

A Canadian province and the State of Israel have signed an agreement for water research, which will benefit water-scarce countries worldwide.
The Government of Alberta, Canada has pledged $1 million (Canadian) towards a joint venture with the Jewish National Fund for Israeli and Canadian scientists to research water irrigation and conservation techniques in Israel.

This is the first cooperation of this kind between a Canadian province and JNF-KKL. At a ceremony on Tuesday evening, JNF (Keren Kayemet Le'Yisrael - KKL) World Chairman Yehiel Leket and Alberta Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation, Dr. Lyle Oberg, signed the agreement.

Dr. Oberg is leading an Alberta mission to Israel that has been visiting sites central to Israel's water infrastructure, including the Sapir Station, where the national water carrier transfers water from the Galilee to the Negev; the Beit Shean Valley, where the reservoir system and Jordan River drainage basin are managed; the Shafdan Waste Water Treatment Center; the Besor research and development station; and the Arad Water Recycling Complex Water Desalination Plant.

The Canadian delegation has also been meeting with leading government officials, including Vice-Premier Shimon Peres.

The research conducted by Alberta and Israeli scientists will support Alberta's Water for Life Strategy and will be available worldwide to aid those regions suffering from water scarcity.

Al-Qaeda has built at least one base in Sinai, from where terrorists
are sent to Gaza and from there to Israel. Egypt has done nothing to
stop it, says IDF Intelligence Chief Gen. Ze'evi-Farkash.

Gen. Aharon Ze'evi-Farkash told the Cabinet ministers at their weekly
meeting on Sunday that a gang of the international terrorist
organization Al-Qaeda recently took over a large area in the Sinai
Peninsula. After banishing the residents, they placed mines around
their new base - signaling Egyptian police and army forces not to come

Activities at the base include the training of terrorists and
preparations for sending them to Gaza, from where they can more easily
enter Israel to perpetrate attacks.

A recent article in The
Jordan Times cites reports to the effect that Al-Qaeda has set up
makeshift camps in Sinai's rough terrain and inaccessible peaks just
as it did in Afghanistan's Tora Bora mountains. Debkafile, which
reported on Al-Qaeda's presence in Sinai a week ago, said that
Egyptian forces basically control only the perimeter of Sinai, while
up to half of the interior is exclusively Al-Qaeda-land.

Prof. Robert J. Aumann of Heb. U. is a co-winner of this year's Nobel
Prize in Economics, for "enhancing our understanding of conflict and
cooperation through game-theory analysis."

Aumann, a religious Jew who grew up in New York City and currently
resides in Jerusalem, won the prestigious prize together with Prof.
Thomas C. Schelling of the University of Maryland. The two
established game theory as the dominant approach towards understanding
conflict and cooperation between countries, individuals and
organizations. They will share the $1.3 million prize.

The official name of the prize, which will be awarded in Stockholm on
Dec. 10, is The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of
Alfred Nobel. Nobel himself established awards for physics, chemistry,
medicine, peace and literature, and Sweden's central bank added
economics to the list in 1968.

Prof. Yisrael Aharoni, head of the Mathematics Department of the
Jerusalem College of Technology (Machon Lev) in Jerusalem, studied
briefly under Prof. Aumann. Expressing satisfaction at Aumann's Nobel
recognition, Aharoni told Arutz-7, "Three years ago, another Israeli
professor, Daniel Kahneman, won the Economics prize, and he basically
said that economics is all psychology. What's interesting is that
this winner, Prof. Aumann, says basically the opposite, that economics
is all mathematical and logical."

Subject: Fw: Debka; Russian Military Advisors Land in Gaza - Are You

Debka below says that Israel is surprised to learn about Russian military advisors landing in Gaza. I don't know why Israel should be surprised. One week before I arrived in Israel in May to attend the Board of Governors meeting at the Ben Gurion University, Putin was in Gaza and announced that he intended to arm the new Palestinian state. He was already selling advanced missiles to Syria to use in Lebanon. He just informed Condoleezza Rice that he intends to continue selling nuclear technology to Iran and will not join the U.S. at the UN to call for its censorship of Iran's actions.

Sharon was warned and knew of Putin's intent well before his unilateral withdrawal of the IDF from Gaza. As a result, Israel is literally surrounded by a ring of fire today. Egypt, Syria, and Iran all have major weapons systems capable of hitting any spot in Israel. We just haven't had confirmed whether any of these nations now possess some of the 100 plus nuclear weapons missing from Russia's arsenal.

We will soon find out if it will be our weapons that deliver us or the mighty strong right arm of the Almighty or both. May God help us.

DEBKAfile - Russian "military advisers" land in the Gaza Strip

Russian "military advisers" land in the Gaza Strip ? DEBKAfile reports exclusively. Jerusalem was not informed of this latest violation of the military protocols Egypt signed.

October 15, 2005, 1:22 PM (GMT+02:00)

<>DEBKAfile, Political Analysis, Espionage, Terrorism Security
Coverage of current events in Israel for the international reader. Published in
both English and Hebrew.

The Egyptians and Palestinians deliberately opened the Rafah border crossing from Sinai to Gaza on Yom Kippur Thursday, Oct. 13 ? this time not just for illicit Palestinian and weapons traffic ? but to let in 15 Russian intelligence officers. Officially described as "military advisers" to train Palestinian security forces, their arrival floored Israel.

DEBKAfile's military sources say this is a landmark, the first Russian military presence in a Palestinian war zone against Israel. It also represented another flagrant Egyptian violation of its commitments under the new military protocols it signed with Israel to bar the Philadelphi border crossing to foreign military personnel.

Moscow is clearly in mid-momentum of a fresh Middle East initiative. Putin has promised the Palestinian Authority in Gaza 1,000 armored personnel carriers. He is also going through with the sale of the state of the art Iskander SS-26 surface missiles, as first disclosed by DEBKA-Net-Weekly 224 on Sept 30. The Kalugin talks in Ramallah came on the heels of a visit by senior US official David Welch to wind up details of the Abbas White House visit. The Palestinian leader kept word of the Russian gambit close to his chest.

DEBKAfile's intelligence experts recall Abu Mazen's Cold War Russian connections with the former KGB's First Directorate. A graduate of Moscow University, he retains those connections to the present day.

Three foreign intelligence missions are now operating in the Gaza Strip ? the American CIA, the British MI6 and now the Russian FSB ? as well as the Egyptians. They have all failed signally to prevent the Gaza Strip from falling into the clutches of the radical terrorist Hamas and Jihad Islami or stem al Qaeda's percolation from Sinai. The Russians are unlikely to be any more successful.

4. U.S. EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER SAUDI WMD [Weapons of Mass Destruction]

WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has been quietly monitoring Saudi
Arabian efforts to procure or develop weapons of mass destruction.
The Saudi efforts were said to have been a leading concern of the Bush
administration as late as 2003. President George Bush was said to have
expressed worry over WMD proliferation by Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
In a Jan. 30, 2003 conversation with British Prime Tony Blair, Bush was said
to have relayed his concern over the spread of WMD to Pakistan and Saudi
Arabia. The conversation was reported by Blair's personal secretary Matthew
Rycroft, according to a book entitled "Lawless World" by Philippe Sands.
The book, first reported by the New York Times, quoted Bush in his
conversation with Blair as saying he wanted to "go beyond Iraq in dealing
with WMD proliferation, mentioning in particular Saudi Arabia, Iran, North
Korea and Pakistan." The notes of the conversation were forwarded to British
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.

5. Uri Avnery Insights to Iraq followed by Brit-Am Comment
"What Awaits Samira?"

First: That the real aim of the war on Iraq was to station a permanent American garrison in that country, supported by a local Quisling regime, in order to secure direct control of the vast oil resources of Iraq itself and indirectly of the oil reserves of the region - Saudi Arabia, the other Gulf states and the Caspian basin. No "Mass Destruction Weapons", no "Removal of a blood-thirsty Tyrant", no "Spreading Democracy", no "Axis of Evil".

Second: That the main result of the war will be the breakup of the country into three mutually hostile components - Sunni Arabs, Shiites and Kurds. Whether this breakup of the Iraqi state is disguised as a "loose federation" or in some other way is immaterial. The important point is whether control over the oil resources is vested in the central or the local authorities.

It was clear that the Kurds would settle for nothing less then de facto independence, keeping their oil revenues for themselves. It was also clear that this would arouse the most profound fears in Turkey, Iran and Syria, all of which have an oppressed Kurdish population which dreams of the eventual establishment of a great, united Kurdistan.

It was also clear that the Iraqi Shiite state would be led by religious figures, most of whom have lived in Iran, who would impose the Islamic code of law, the Sharia. These clerics, while not necessarily becoming stooges of Tehran, will certainly lean in that direction. They will, of course, try to keep the huge oil revenues of their region to themselves.

One does not have to be a prophet of Biblical dimensions to have foreseen that the Arab Sunnis would not accept this lying down. In such a "federation" they will lose power and oil revenues, being thrown from the heights of their might into an abyss of impotence. This led to an "insurgency" which grows ten new heads for every one cut off, because it results from an insoluble problem. Neither the Kurdish nor the Shiite leaders are the kind of people who would relinquish any of their long-yearned-for advantages, for the sake of an Iraq they neither loved nor identified with from the start.

Brit-Am Comment: a. If the USA needs control of the oil resources to survey it is better for the USA, for the Middle East
and for the whole world that the USA take such control.
b. Iraq was not a sovereign state but an oppressive regime of a minority of Sunni Moslems ruling with excessive cruelty
over Shiites and Kurds. Under Sadam the Sunnis also suffered. Sadam is a war criminal.
c. Sadam was developing unconventional weapons and for decades UN supervisors had been unsuccessfully
attempting to prevent him from doing so. Sadam had employed poisonous gas on Kurdish villages and bombs
on the women and children of his own people.
d. Iraq is recovering and the average Iraqi citizen is far better off than he ever was and most of them realize it.
This does not mean that the USA is not in danger of being faced with local insurgencies it cannot control.
Iraq is a Moslem Arab country and people are not rational. The solution to our mind is for the USA
to maintain its control either directly or through proxies.
e. Sadam was a threat to the Israeli population. It is good for Israel that the USA is in Iraq.
It is also good for the USA and world stability.
All this does not mean that things will not take a turn for the worse.
Anything could happen.
Things could also take a turn for the better.

(2 Chr 6:16 KJV) Now therefore, O LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.

Part I - Founded for this purpose
"I believe the main reason the United States was founded 250 years ago was
so that our great country would be in a position to stand with the restored
nation of Israel in these days."

This astonishing point of view was expressed by a North Carolinian
Conservative candidate for the US Congress in conversation with an American
pastor friend early in 2004.
Apparently, David Huffman believed that when, in the early 17th century,
God moved on the hearts of men to leave England and make their way west
across the Atlantic, it was in His mind to plant a new nation to which He
would bequeath a special honor and spectacular destiny.
When God brought about the independence of the United States in 1776, He
was supervising the founding of a nation He purposed to have in place about
two centuries later as the world's mightiest superpower.
And His reason for elevating America to this position was so that she would
ally herself with the surviving remnant of the Jewish people, help them
take root again in their national homeland, and support them in their
struggle against a hostile world.
So America exists for Israel's sake? What an absurd thought!
By such reckoning, all the major events that shaped the United States -
from the days of early settlement, through the colonial era, the War of
Independence and Declaration of Independence, the launching of the
Information Age, the American Industrial Revolution, the American Civil
War, the Abolition of Slavery, the attainment to flight, World War One, the
Great Depression, World War Two, the advent of the Atomic Age, the Space
Race, the Cold War and America's victory over it - all these things took
place ultimately so that the United States could be positioned to stand
with the Jewish nation in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Surely a ridiculous idea!
Israel is one of the smallest nations on earth, just 26,990 square miles or
43,436 square kilometers in total surface area. It is home to 6.8 million
Israelis, nearly 80 percent of them Jewish. The daily lives of its people
revolve around the basic issues of survival against military onslaught,
preserving Israel as a Jewish state and yet a democracy, absorbing hundreds
of thousands of new immigrants, building a prosperous economy for its
citizens, and battling for acceptance in a world that has never had much
time for Jews. Events happening almost everywhere on the globe impact
Israel in one way or the other.
By contrast, the United States could swallow this scrap of Jewish homeland
130 times. The 3.5 million square miles (5.6million sq. km) of that mammoth
country are home to 300 million people, 98 percent of them Gentiles. It is
the wealthiest, most powerful military and industrial nation in the world.
Americans are proud - immensely proud - of their country. For the majority
of its citizens, America is the center of the world. For some it is the
world. There is so much going on somewhere in the US at any given moment of
every day that events outside its borders often don't penetrate the daily
news bulletins and consequently simply do not happen as far as most
Americans are concerned.

The United States lies half-a-world away from the State of Israel.
Politically, it is largely consumed with issues affecting its relations
with the other great nations on the globe - the European Union, China,
Russia. It holds veto power in, and is a permanent member of, the United
Nations Security Council. It hosts and attends as the most important member
world summits like the G-7, and sponsors global energy and numerous other
initiatives while maintaining an intensely high level of diplomatic
activity with a finger in almost every political pie on the planet.
And this giant's purpose, its primary raison d'etre, is to be allied with
Israel against the rest of the international community?
How could any serious-minded person accept such a notion? Well, David
Huffman and his pastor friend believe this to be true. So, for that matter,
do I.
As a non-American, however, perhaps it is easier for me to see things this
For most American Christians, raised to be deeply patriotic and fiercely
loyal to their country, and enjoying the sense of near-invulnerability
offered by such a powerful motherland, reaching a conclusion like this
would require a revolutionary paradigm shift.
To fathom this and ultimately embrace it means to recognize that little
Israel and no other nation - no matter how large and mighty - is at the
center of God's plan for mankind.

But God had not abandoned Jacob "whom He foreknew." Although humanity had
now entered the Christian epoch Israel - the desolate land and the
scattered people - outlived or survived in spite of every major kingdom and
empire that existed from the time of Christ until today, including Rome,
the Byzantium and Islamic states, the Crusaders, the British Empire, Nazi
Germany, and the USSR.

Unlike all other Gentile nations in history, America had the distinction of
being built on biblical bedrock. Dig down to her foundations, and you'll
find the Scriptures there.
In 1620 it was devotion to the Bible, "to the letter and the spirit, to the
Old Testament as well as the New" that drove the Separatist Puritans to
board the Mayflower and hazard the journey to New England where they
established one of the first settlements in the New World.

Stated the first president of the United States and a self-confessed
believer in Jesus, George Washington: "It is impossible to govern the world
without God and the Bible."
His successor, John Adams, expressed it this way: "Our constitution was
made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the
government of any other."

As the years passed, belief in the vital importance to the United States of
these Christian biblical roots was entrenched. After he came to office in
1923, President Calvin Coolidge wrote: "The foundations of our society and
our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be
difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be
practically universal in our country."

It is this belief which holds the key to America's victorious survival
against the forces that want to see her go the way of all the powers before
her. The Bible contains all the answers, and all the plans, that God has
for individuals and for nations. And the nation central to its subject and
present on all its pages is Israel.
I believe God has always had a special destiny laid out for America. And,
tall order though it may be at this late hour in our era, I believe that
America can yet rediscover and pursue that destiny.
It will require that God's people in that land exchange their perspective -
which has their great country at the center of the world - for God's
perspective, which has little Israel in that place, at the hub of His still
unfolding redemption plan.
America's God-ordained, glorious role and privilege, if she can find the
humility to live it out, is to serve Israel by standing with her against
the rest of the world, and enabling her to fulfill her mission.
In truth, the United States has already made much headway towards this.
Since assuming her place at the head of the nations, she has sacrificed
enormously to ensure the defeat of Nazism and the thwarting of Soviet
Communism. She is now embroiled in bitter battle to prevent the
Islamicization of the world in a war that has her pitted against Israel's
latest, most mortal foe. By sending American men and women deep into
Afghanistan and Iraq to deal powerful blows to Islam's frontline forces,
the United States is not only confronting and working towards neutralizing
the likes of those who carried out 9-11. America is de facto defending
Israel at the same time.
According to all I have written here, this is what America was really
founded for. She is on the way towards the realization of her calling. Will
she then, as she is poised to do at the very height of this battle, sell
Israel out to the very enemy that aims to consume both the United States
and the bruised and bloodied little Jewish nation?

I often wish they were right.
I read their articles for amusement and even encouragement but not in

Halutz says targeted hits to continue

Israel will continue with the "extremely effective" policy of targeted
terrorist killings, IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant Dan Halutz said Tuesday at
a meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting.

"The policy has proven its own success," he said, adding that currently the
IDF was focusing on Islamic Jihad. "They [Islamic Jihad] are the ones that
are doing the firing at the moment, Hamas has stopped."

In 2005, there were 37 "targeted assassinations," said Halutz, who stressed
that those operations contributed to the decrease in terror activity.

Halutz also told the committee that terrorist had smuggled as many as 10
shoulder-launched missiles into Gaza since 2004. He added, however, that
there had been a greater threat to civilian air traffic outside of Israel
than within.

"We have certain technology against these things here in Israel," said
Halutz, although he declined to specify.

While there had been a noticeable decrease in the scope of violence,
terrorists in the West Bank had intensified their efforts to launch attacks,
the sources said. "One should not be deceived by the so-called calm.
Underneath, the ground is boiling," a security official said.

5. Phoenician or Ancient Greek Harbor Discovered off Miami Coast??
(News to be considered with extra Caution due to past hoaxes in this matter)
(I-Newswire) - Archaeologist William Donato and a team of researchers have confirmed a complex of ancient harbor works in shallow water off Bimini, 50 miles from Miami. In May 2005, the team investigated a little-known line of underwater stones located a mile from a controversial site known as the "Bimini Road." The new mile-long line of stones was found and videotaped from the air. Subsequent dives revealed several large stone circles on the bottom, formed from large blocks of limestone arranged into circular patterns. The circles were spaced at regular intervals. Stone anchors, identical to ancient Phoenician, Greek, and Roman anchors, were also found. "These finds took us by surprise," stated Dr. Greg Little, who organized the expedition. "The circles may be similar to ancient Mediterranean harbor 'mooring circles.'"

Near the new site is the Bimini Road, a misnamed J-shaped underwater formation of stone blocks. A careful search there yielded two stone anchors in the 1800-foot long stone formation. "One of these is identical to unusual ancient Greek anchors found at Thera," Little related. Several other artifacts were found, "but the most important finds directly contradict skeptical claims." The team found numerous multiple tiers of blocks including one set of three on top of each other. "The top block has a U-shaped channel cut all the way across its bottom," Little said. "The most definitive evidence was found under the massive blocks. We found rectangular slabs of smooth, cut stone literally stacked under several blocks. These were used as leveling prop stones. This is proof that the so-called Bimini Road was a breakwater forming an ancient harbor."

The team took 20 hours of underwater video and 1000 photos. "It's taken us five months to process the information and organize the evidence," Little stated. "While the finds are definitive, the real problem is that a few skeptics wrote articles asserting the main formation was simply natural limestone. A hoax was perpetrated at Bimini by the skeptics, but you have to examine a 1978 report to understand it. Academic archaeologists and geologists don't read that report. They cite later summaries, which are based on falsified data. The hoax is a disgrace, but it's been actively supported by key people."

Subject: In Defense of Christian Conservatives

Rabbi Daniel Lapin
Toward Tradition.

We Jews aren’t chic any longer. Not too many people care for Jews these days. Europe, including England, makes little secret of how it feels towards Jews. If possible, they care even less for Israel. All Moslem countries, more than a billion angry people frequently at one another’s necks, are magically unified over hatred for Jews and resentment over that little patch of sand in the Middle East which Jews turned into a country. Much of Africa and most of Russia feels the same way. Hate the Jews.

It is very challenging for a small group of people to survive with no friends.

But wait! There is one group of people who unconditionally love Jews and the Land of Israel. These people are called Christian conservatives. They are made up of Catholics, and Protestants, Baptists and Lutherans and many others. Although theologies differ widely, they all share a deep conviction that God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai. They all fervently believe that in so doing, God presented humanity with a blueprint for life. Needless to say, these views should be shared by every Jew committed to his faith.

We leave God to peer into other’s motivations and we are called to judge other people by how they act. And the overwhelming majority of Christian conservatives in America act with astounding goodness, generosity, and friendship.

A common understanding of the Bible, its promises and its directions, lies at the foundation of the special friendship the Christian Right has for Jews. Most Jews are profoundly grateful to have such faithful friends during a period when events are echoing frightening times of the past.

It is a remarkable thing, this friendship. Very different theologies, very different histories and backgrounds, and even different visions of the future, yet a shared recollection of our Biblical past assures the present in an atmosphere of trust and amity.

This may be a good time for me to expose the five slanderous lies surrounding America’s most misunderstood movement:
1) The Christian Right wishes to impose a theocracy on America.

Who really does have a record of forcing their values down the throats of everyone else? Over the past forty years life in America has been made indescribably more squalid, expensive, and dangerous.

Forget city parks at night; we worry about children surviving a day at the local public school with its metal detectors and ludicrously unarmed guards. So who has more successfully forced its values down our throats? I think the record speaks for itself.

2) The Christian right believes all who disagree with them are going to hell.

Even if some believe this, so what?

For me personally, it bothers me not at all that many of my Christian friends believe I am headed to hell. Frankly I am deeply grateful to be living among such wonderful Christian neighbors who do absolutely nothing to accelerate my arrival there. Does the phrase “Spanish Inquisition” mean anything to you?

Israel’s safety belt is undoubtedly America’s Bible belt and I am sure that America has provided history’s safest and longest lasting haven for Jews, not in spite of, but precisely because of her deep Christian conviction.

Christian belief, no matter how difficult for non-Christians to accept, poses no threat to anyone. On the contrary, it has turned out to be the source of blessing for all who cherish the freedom and tranquility of the United States of America. The same George Washington who wrote “May the children of the stock of Abraham who dwell in this land continue to merit and enjoy the goodwill of the other inhabitants” was a George Washington who was a deeply religious and very conservative Christian.

3) Christian conservatives are anti-Semitic and racist.

I can only tell you that I regularly deliver speeches to audiences, often of thousands, for the very organizations listed by the ADL in its latest anti-Christian diatribe. I do so as an Orthodox Jewish rabbi and on the dais I wear the same black yarmulke I wore during my Torah studies in yeshiva. I talk of the same Biblical values I was taught in that yeshiva. After the speech I frequently enjoy a dinner brought by the organizers with considerable trouble and expense from a kosher restaurant, often from another city. I am received with enthusiasm and genuine warmth. If this be anti-Semitism, my grandfather in Europe would surely have welcomed it.

Oh, did I mention that many of the pastors making up the Christian Right are themselves black Americans?

I estimate that at least ten percent of most every audience I address is African American. The charge that the Christian Right is racist is made exclusively by people whose antagonism is exceeded only by their ignorance.

4) Christian conservatives are poor, uneducated, and easy to command.

This allegation was first made by Washington Post journalist Michael Weisskopf in a front page story on February 1st, 1993. In reality, average annual income for Christian conservatives is well above the national average. Furthermore, the average net worth of conservative Christian families rockets ahead of the national average especially when corrected for age and income. This shouldn’t surprise anyone because the values of thrift and industry that build net worth are among the values encouraged by Biblical faith. Finally, the bountiful generosity in the form of charitable donations made by America’s religious conservatives in any year exceeds the gross domestic product of many nation members of the United Nations.

Most of the nation’s hundreds of Christian colleges, with their rigorous academic standards, routinely outperform state universities. Christian home schoolers win the national spelling bees year after year. In a 2003 article entitled God on the Quad, the Boston Globe described how well Christian Evangelical students are doing on New England’s liberal elite university campuses.

As for easy to command, well Evangelical judicial nominee Harriet Miers was forced to withdraw her nomination precisely because America’s religious conservatives are not easy to command.

5) The Christian right is anti-Scientific.

This charge emerges from secular America’s docile homage to the doctrines of Darwin. Wise and educated people today realize that the borderline between cutting-edge science and religious belief is fuzzy. One need only examine the work of cosmologist Stephen Hawking, British scientific philosopher Antony Flew, or Israeli physicist Gerald Schroeder to hear the language of theology. Only propagandists and ideologues think that Darwin ended the discussion.

The truth is that two incompatible beliefs can account for mankind’s presence on the planet. The first is that God created us in His image and placed us here. The second is that through a lengthy process of unaided materialistic evolution, primitive protoplasm became Bach, Beethoven, and the Beatles.

Many scientists, including the 40% who are religious according to a University of Georgia study cited by the New York Times in February of this year, accept the first view. Many scientists accept the second view and some scientists await further evidence. The issue is hardly cut and dried because a great deal of modern science flows as much from scientific philosophy as it does from laboratory experiment. This is particularly true of non-replicable science such as that dealing with cosmology and origin of the universe questions.

It would be tough to find a single Christian high school, college, or university in the nation that does not treat Darwinian evolution seriously. However, it would be even tougher to find a single public high school or secular university that grants a respectful hearing to intelligent design, let alone a religious view of creation.

It is also only on secular campuses that truth is frequently suppressed in the interests of political correctness.

I Does Jewish survival lie with a fervent secularism that ceaselessly snaps at the heels of Christian America or does it lie within political alliance with those people who stand firm for the values God imparted to the Jews at the foot of Mount Sinai just over three thousand years ago. One way is right and the other is wrong. Which is it?

2. Scientists find ˜Goliath" inscribed on pottery
Reference from 950 B.C. lends credence to Bible tale, archaeologists say
The Associated Press
Updated: 9:30 p.m. ET Nov. 10, 2005

JERUSALEM - Archaeologists digging at the purported biblical home of Goliath have unearthed a shard of pottery bearing an inscription of the Philistine’s name, a find they claimed lends historical credence to the Bible’s tale of David’s battle with the giant.

While the discovery is not definitive evidence of Goliath’s existence, it does support the Bible’s depiction of life at the time the battle was supposed to have occurred, said Dr. Aren Maeir, a professor at Bar-Ilan University and director of the excavation.

“What this means is that at the time there were people there named Goliath,” he said. “It shows us that David and Goliath’s story reflects the cultural reality of the time.” In the story, David slew Goliath with a slingshot.

Some scholars assert the story of David slaying the giant Goliath is a myth written down hundreds of years later. Maeir said finding the scraps lends historical credence to the biblical story.

The shard dates back to around 950 B.C., within 70 years of when biblical chronology asserts David squared off against Goliath, making it the oldest Philistine inscription ever found, the archaeologists said.

Scientists made the discovery at Tel es-Safi, a dig site in southern Israel thought to be to be the location of the Philistine city of Gath.

3. Ancient Hebrew Alphabet Found
Mr. Davidiy,

Here is further evidence of the David/Solomon Dynasty being an advanced civilization. Further proof of original alphabet starting in Israel and then spreading into the Greek and then Roman empires.


Rob Jones

From: "Dr. Atlas Laster" <>
Subject: Ancient Hebrew Alphabet

Here's a link to a recent NY Times article concerning an important archaeological discovery.
The New York Times
A Is for Ancient, Describing an Alphabet Found Near Jerusalem

In the 10th century B.C., in the hill country south of Jerusalem, a scribe carved his A B C's on a limestone boulder - actually, his aleph-beth-gimel's, for the string of letters appears to be an early rendering of the emergent Hebrew alphabet.
Letters on a stone found near Tel Zayit resemble Phoenician.

Archaeologists digging in July at the site, Tel Zayit, found the inscribed stone in the wall of an ancient building. After an analysis of the layers of ruins, the discoverers concluded that this was the earliest known specimen of the Hebrew alphabet and an important benchmark in the history of writing, they said this week.

If they are right, the stone bears the oldest reliably dated example of an abecedary - the letters of the alphabet written out in their traditional sequence. Several scholars who have examined the inscription tend to support that view.

The discovery of the stone will be reported in detail next week in Philadelphia, but was described in interviews with Ron E. Tappy, the archaeologist at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary who directed the dig.

"All successive alphabets in the ancient world, including the Greek one, derive from this ancestor at Tel Zayit," he said.

Lawrence E. Stager, an archaeologist at Harvard engaged in other excavations in Israel, said the pottery styles at the site "fit perfectly with the 10th century, which makes this an exceedingly rare inscription." But he added that more extensive radiocarbon dating would be needed to establish the site's chronology.

The Tel Zayit stone was uncovered at an eight-acre site in the region of ancient Judah, south of Jerusalem, and 18 miles inland from Ashkelon, an ancient Philistine port.

The two lines of incised letters, apparently the 22 symbols of the Hebrew alphabet, were on one face of the 40-pound stone. A bowl-shaped hollow was carved in the other side, suggesting that the stone had been a drinking vessel for cult rituals, Dr. Tappy said.

The inscription was found in the context of a substantial network of buildings at the site, which led Dr. Tappy to propose that Tel Zayit was probably an important border town established by an expanding Israelite kingdom based in Jerusalem.

A border town of such size and culture, Dr. Tappy said, suggested a centralized bureaucracy, political leadership and literacy levels that seemed to support the biblical image of the unified kingdom of David and Solomon in the 10th century B.C.

4. Jehoash tablet said found near Muslim cemetery

By Nadav Shragai
The inscription attributed to King Jehoash whose discovery was announced earlier this week was reportedly found near Jerusalem's Muslim cemetery, outside the eastern wall of the Temple Mount, not far from Golden Gate, according to information obtained by Ha'aretz.
Jehoash ruled in Jerusalem at the end of the ninth century B.C.E. The inscription has been authenticated by the National Infrastructure Ministry's Geological Survey of Israel.

Account of Inscription

2 Kings 12:1-6 states, in part:

"In the seventh year of Jehu Jehoash began to reign; and forty years reigned he in Jerusalem....And Jehoash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all his days wherein Jehoiada the priest instructed him. But the high places were not taken away: the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places. And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD, even the money of every one that passeth the account, the money that every man is set at, and all the money that cometh into any man's heart to bring into the house of the LORD, Let the priests take it to them, every man of his acquaintance: and let them repair the breaches of the house, wheresoever any breach shall be found. But it was so, that in the three and twentieth year of king Jehoash the priests had not repaired the breaches of the house."

2 Kings 12:11-16 states, in part:

"And they gave the money, being told, into the hands of them that did the work, that had the oversight of the house of the LORD: and they laid it out to the carpenters and builders, that wrought upon the house of the LORD, And to masons, and hewers of stone, and to buy timber and hewed stone to repair the breaches of the house of the LORD, and for all that was laid out for the house to repair it. Howbeit there were not made for the house of the LORD bowls of silver, snuffers, basons, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or vessels of silver, of the money that was brought into the house of the LORD: But they gave that to the workmen, and repaired therewith the house of the LORD. Moreover they reckoned not with the men, into whose hand they delivered the money to be bestowed on workmen: for they dealt faithfully. The trespass money and sin money was not brought into the house of the LORD: it was the priests'. "

5. Amnon Goldberg: Is The Earth the Center of the Universe?
From: "." <>
Subject: Barycentric

There is much evidence to support geocentricity, that the Earth really is located at the center of the universe, as all of mankind, including Chazal [The Talmudic Sages], once held. One of the challenges frequently made against geocentricity is the "barycentric argument:" " . . . that things revolve around the heaviest object." How can the Sun which is one billion times more massive than the Earth orbit it daily kegibbor lorutz orach (Tehillim 19) [Psalms 19:5: "AS A STRONG MAN TO RUN A RACE]?

This is discussed by Hoyle in his book Nicolaus Copernicus...Hoyle points out that the Earth does not, technically, revolve around the Sun, but rather, the Earth and Sun both revolve around the center of mass of the Earth-Sun system, which is quite a few miles from the Sun's central axis (though still well inside the Sun). Hoyle points out that one must factor in all objects, starting with the nearest stars, to recalculate the true center-of-mass of the earth-sun-universe. Hoyle speculates that once one has properly applied the barycentric argument to all other entities in the universe (known as "widening the view angle of one's telescope to avoid self- serving tunnel vision"), the center-of-mass may easily be at the Earth's location, making it impossible to disprove the geocentric hypothesis.

Hoyle says the barycentric argument is only properly applied when every object in the universe has been factored into the center-of-mass calculation, a calculation that has never been done. He believes that consistent application of the barycentric argument, layer by layer, places the center- of-mass farther away from the Sun and closer to the Earth and concludes that the barycentric argument can easily and fully support pure geocentricity: "The Earth is suspended at the center of the universe" (Hilchos Yesodei HaTorah 3).

Murder also appears to be disproportionately associated with homosexuality. Jim Warren did the intake interview for almost all younger murderers (i.e., those under age 36) at the Washington State Corrections Center from 1971-82. In an interview in 1994... Warren said that he was struck with how frequently homosexuality turned up in the cases...: Although the motive listed in the report was often robbery or theft, he said that "about 50% of the time" it was associated with homosexuality...

...a group [homosexuals] constituting perhaps 1% to 5% of men (1.3% in the 1996 National Household Survey of Drug Abuse; higher in Black, et al. 7, Anderson and Stall 8, and Cameron and Cameron 9) generated 43% of those who were recorded in the most recent 14 years of news stories as having raped and killed children. [The minority of the population that is homosexual] also accounts for around a third of child molesters, commits between a third to two-thirds of child rapes, and may be involved in up to half of all murders...

2. Thatcher used 'nuclear blackmail' to get missile codes
By Jon Henley, Paris
November 23, 2005

MARGARET Thatcher forced Francois Mitterrand to give her the codes to disable Argentina's French-made missiles during the Falklands war by threatening to launch a nuclear warhead against Buenos Aires, according to a book.

Rendez-vous: the psychoanalysis of Francois Mitterrand , by Ali Magoudi, who met the late French president up to twice a week in secrecy at his Paris practice from 1982 to 1984, also reveals that Mr Mitterrand believed he would get his "revenge" by building a tunnel under the Channel that would forever destroy Britain's island status. The book, to be published on Friday, is one of several on France's first Socialist president to mark the 10th anniversary of his death on January 8, 1996.

Despite a now tarnished reputation, he remains a source of fascination for the French in general and the left in particular. Rendez-vous provides revealing insights into the man's mysterious character, complicated past, paranoia and power complex, but nothing as titillating as his remarks on the former British prime minister. "Excuse me. I had a difference to settle with the Iron Lady. That Thatcher, what an impossible woman!" the president said as he arrived, more than 45 minutes late, on May 7, 1982.

"With her four nuclear submarines in the south Atlantic, she's threatening to unleash an atomic weapon against Argentina if I don't provide her with the secret codes that will make the missiles we sold the Argentinians deaf and blind." He reminded Mr Magoudi that on May 4 an Exocet missile had struck HMS Sheffield. "To make matters worse, it was fired from a Super-Etendard jet," he said. "All the materiel was French!"

In words the psychoanalyst has sworn to the publisher, Meren Sell, are genuine, the president continued: "She's livid. She blames me personally for this new Trafalgar … I was obliged to give in. She's got them now, the codes."

Mr Mitterrand who once described Mrs Thatcher as "the eyes of Caligula and the mouth of Marilyn Monroe" went on: "One cannot win against the insular syndrome of an unbridled Englishwoman. Provoke a nuclear war for a few islands inhabited by three sheep as hairy as they are freezing! But it's a good job I gave way. Otherwise, I assure you, the lady's metallic finger would have hit the button."

France, he said, would have the last word. "I'll build a tunnel under the Channel. I'll succeed where Napoleon III failed. And do you know why she'll accept my tunnel? I'll flatter her shopkeeper's spirit. I'll tell her it won't cost the Crown a penny."

4. Iran Prepares Missiles Against Western Europe?
Iran is building boosters capable of launching satellites. Mehran Mirshams, deputy director of the Iranian Aerospace Association, said in August that “we will see the first Iranian missile which is capable of carrying such objects" in the near future.

U.S. officials believe Iran will use the satellite-carrying missile program as cover for building a long-range missile. The U.S. is developing missile defenses to be able to counter Iranian and North Korean missiles.

Defense officials say Iran’s effort to build long-range missiles is directly tied to Teheran’s secret nuclear program. Recent intelligence indicates the Iranians are developing a small warhead for their missiles, which currently include 620-mile-range Shihab-3s.

The U.S. Air Force’s National Air and Space Intelligence Center reported that Iran is working on a 1,200-mile Shihab-4 medium-range missile and an intercontinental-range Shahab-5, neither of which has yet been flight-tested.

By Hillel Fendel

[] IDF paratrooper David Markowitz, a student of the Hesder yeshiva in Mitzpeh Ramon, became a national hero for a day on Tuesday when he killed four Hizbullah terrorists with one gun burst.

photo courtesy of IDF Spokesman: the thwarting of an abduction
Markowitz, who will be 21 next week, has been in the army for only eight months. On Monday night, during the furious Hizbullah attack against northern Israeli targets, he and the soldiers in his unit prevented a planned abduction of an Israeli soldier.
He was the first to notice a band of Hizbullah terrorists that had crossed Israel's Lebanese border on jeeps and motorbikes - and shot them to death.

In a similar attack five years ago, Hizbullah terrorists abducted three soldiers - and never notified Israel that they killed them almost immediately afterwards.

This week's incident accompanied a multi-pronged Hizbullah rocket and mortar shell attack against Israeli military and civilian targets. When he saw the terrorists arriving, Markowitz later said, "I was scared" - but he kept his cool and composure, opened fire, and shot three terrorists dead. A fourth one died of his wounds a short time afterwards.

Markowitz's commander, Lt.-Col. Yaniv Aluf, described his actions as an "amazing display of courage, discipline and composure."

In summarizing the incident, the Northern Commander said that had Markowitz not noticed the approaching danger, the incident would have ended with many casualties and "in an extremely grave manner." "With his first shots, he determined the fate of the battle," Northern Command sources said. The army is considering awarding him a certificate of honor.

A resident of the small town of Gimzo in central Israel, Markowitz serves in the army in the framework of Hesder, which literally means "arrangement." It provides for five years of alternating periods of yeshiva study and combat army service.

The Hesder yeshivot, which are widely known for their highly-motivated and skilled soldiers, have come under fire of late from army officials for their stance vis-a-vis the Disengagement plan. IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz has even gone so far as to demand that the yeshiva in Elon Moreh no longer be granted Hesder status because its Dean, Rabbi Yaakov Levanon, called upon students to refuse expulsion-related orders.

The final decision as to whether to close the yeshiva lies with Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz.

Rabbi Levanon himself said that this was not a personal issue and that he would not fight this battle: "I will leave this war for my colleagues, the other yeshiva heads... The question is when a Torah personality expresses a Torah opinion, is it right to punish him? Is it right to train people to deny their personal truth in order to 'get along better in life'? Every yeshiva head could find himself facing a question like this..."

The Hesder yeshiva heads are to meet today (Wednesday) to formulate a stance on this issue. Spokesman Rabbi David Stav said that the Union of Hesder Yeshivot "does not accept this decision by the Chief of Staff, and is trying to have the decree rescinded."

The Commander of the IDF Personnel Corps, Maj.-Gen. Elazar Stern, announced plans a few months ago to disband, to some degree, the Hesder yeshiva units. Relations between the yeshivot and the army are thus not at their zenith.

In the meanwhile, the fact that David Markowitz is a Hesder yeshiva student was all but buried in the press reports - despite the prominent role that Hesder yeshivot have played in recent news.

Army Radio interviewer Razi Barkai asked Defense Minister Sha'ul Mofaz this morning whether he does not feel "discomfited" by the fact that "a soldier" was so highly praised for simply "doing his job." Mofaz said he does not feel that way, that the soldier deserves to be praised, and that the army publicizes the details of failures as well as successes.

3. Chaye Sarah in Hebron
Subject: Chaye Sarah in Hebron
The Hebron Press Office
Sunday November 27, 2005

Yesterday Hebron celebrated the purchase of Ma'arat HaMachpela, bought
almost 4,000 years ago by the Patriarch Abraham, to bury his wife, Sarah.
Annually, as this Torah portion is read, thousands of people arrive in
Hebron for Shabbat to hear these verses recited at the very site Abraham

This Shabbat, over 25,000 people from Israel and around the world, arrived
in Hebron to participate in this special event. Hundreds traveled from the
United States especially for this Shabbat, via Hebron's New York office, the
Hebron Fund, and through AFSI. In addition, thousands of Israeli couples
and youth were hosted by Hebron and Kiryat Arba families.

Youth slept in public buildings, prepared especially for Shabbat. Due to the
warm weather, many also pitched tents in Hebron and Kiryat Arba. Shabbat
meals were provided for those who made prior reservations.

Families in Hebron and Kiryat Arba hosted dozens of people in their homes,
with guests sleeping on any available floor space.

Friday night, the multitudes gathered at Ma'arat HaMachpela, the Tomb of the
Patriarchs and Matriarchs, for evening worship. The entire building was open
to Jewish worshipers, including Ohel Yitzhak, the Isaac Hall, open to Jews
only 11 days during the year. Huge prayer services were held both inside and
outside, in the Ma'ara courtyard. Thousands joyously sang and danced the
traditional Kabbalat Shabbat service.

Following the evening meal, many of the guests attended classes and lectures
in Hebron and Kiryat Arba. People could be seen roaming the streets of
Hebron through the early hours of the morning.

At five thirty in the morning, thousands gathered for early morning prayers
at Ma'arat HaMachpela. A 'central service' began at eight o'clock in Ohel
Yitzhak, with thousands crowding in and participating. Hearing the ancient
words chanted, written by a scribe on parchment, describing the lengthy
negotiations leading to Abraham's purchase of the caves and field, almost
four millennium ago, at that very site, left everyone in awe.

Following the services and afternoon meal, throngs toured Hebron's Jewish
neighborhoods, with tours given in Hebrew, English, French and Russian. A
festive 'third meal' was attended by hundreds of guests from the United
States in the Gutnick Center.

Hebron leaders, extremely happy with the huge turnout, said that this was
the largest "Chaye Sarah" Shabbat gathering ever. They expressed hope that
Israeli politicians and world leaders would take note of the tremendous
international support for Hebron's Jewish community. They also commented
that such a strong show of support should assist in efforts to prevent the
possible expulsion of Jewish families from the 'Mitzpe Shalhevet
neighborhood, which was ordered to be implemented before the end of 2005.

A 25-meter-tall (82 feet) replica of Solomon's temple in ancient Jerusalem to be built in northern city of Kiryat Shemoneh. Project will cost 8 million dollars to build, become main feature of city's Bible World amusement park

Not quite the Third Temple, but close: Entrepreneurs in the northern city of Kiryat Shemoneh are making plans to build a "Holy Temple" as part of a soon-to-be established Bible World amusement park.

Like the original in Jerusalem, the model structure will tower over its surroundings, reaching a height of 25 meters (82 feet) and will be an exact replica of Solomon's temple on Jerusalem's Temple Mount, destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.

"Time tunnels" will offer descriptions of the different periods of Jewish history, and will lead visitors to the main hall, which will feature murals depicting Biblical stories.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to "meet" three heroes of the Bible: Abraham, Moses and King David.

Overseeing the project is Chabad rabbi of Kiryat Shemoneh, Yigal Tsipori, who toured the site Wednesday with Mayor Chaim Barbibai and other local rabbis.
"The 'Book of Books,' the cradle of Jewish civilization, is increasingly disappearing from our national consciousness. Limited study is no longer sufficient to attract young people of today to the Bible and its values. Therefore, there is a great need for this initiative," said Tsipori.
"The 'Temple' will use 3-D movies and other tools to show young people just how things worked in the Holy Temple and just what the priests (Cohanim) did," he added.

The park will also feature a Biblical textile mill and wine press, and will host Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions.

The park's founders say they hope to attract 400,000 visitors annually to the park, including local Israeli youths and young people from the Diaspora.

The project, to be located near the Nehemia Mall in Kiryat Shemoneh, is expected to cost USD 8 million (NIS 38 million) and employ several dozen workers.

Several donors have already been lined up to fund the project.

2. WMDs Found in Iraq! and other truths
Extracts ONLY
Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 08:25:48 -0600
From: "" <>
Subject: WMDs Found in Iraq!

1.77 metric tons of enriched uranium
1,500 gallons of chemical weapons agents
Chemical warheads containing cyclosarin (a nerve agent five times more deadly than sarin gas)
Over 1,000 radioactive materials in powdered form meant for dispersal over populated areas
This is only a PARTIAL LIST of the horrific weapons verified to have been recovered in Iraq to date. Yet, Americans overwhelmingly believe U.S. and coalition forces found NO weapons of mass destruction.

The question is... WHY do they believe this lie?

Have you heard that Osama bin Laden is on kidney dialysis? I'll bet you have. Much of the Western media report bin Laden's presumed affliction as a matter of fact -- and most Americans believe it. But...'s just not true.

Now, you may well be thinking: "Why would the news media want to make me believe that Osama bin Laden is a very sick and perhaps dying man?" Well, here's why...

The news media are -- overwhelmingly -- against the Iraq War. The image of an aged, 6-foot, 8-inch Arab limping from cave to cave, trailing a camel loaded down with dialysis equipment -- eluding George W. Bush and the most powerful military in the world -- appeals to them enormously.

And so the myth lives on -- for SEVEN YEARS now! -- long past the normal life expectancy of patients hooked up to dialysis in the best hospitals, let alone the freezing, rugged mountains of the Afghan-Pakistani border.

There is a name for this phenomenon -- disinformation.

The term refers to the deliberate dissemination of FALSE information (and the intentional omission of TRUE information) for the purpose of confusing rivals or influencing public opinion.

Indeed, the false conclusion that "Bush lied, there were no WMDs in Iraq," is the main supporting claim of the anti-war Left. Without it, the movement collapses.

My name is Tom Winter, Editor in Chief of HUMAN EVENTS. It grieves me to admit that millions upon millions of Americans unknowingly accept blatant falsehoods as facts due to the power and prevalence of disinformation.

Take a look at some of the most pernicious lies that you have no doubt read or heard:

There is no connection between Iraq and al Qaeda

The U.S. funded the Taliban in the 1980s

Suitcase nukes are in place across America

Osama bin Laden was trained by the CIA

Halliburton made a fortune in Iraq

There were no Jews in the Word Trade Center on 9/11

What do each of these widely publicized, widely believed "facts" have in common? Here's what:

They are undeniably false...

Why both the CIA and al Qaeda prop up the myth that Osama bin Laden is immensely wealthy. (The reality of his so-called "wealth" will surprise you)

The truth about Halliburton's "war profits." (If Dick Cheney steered Iraq contracts to the company, Halliburton should sue!)

Who started (and spread) the insidious myth that no Jews died in the 9/11 attacks. (Actually, more than 500 Jews perished in the World Trade Center, in addition to those who were passengers on the doomed planes)

Why it was so important for the airlines and the U.S. government to spin the myth that "box cutters" were used to commandeer the planes on 9/11

The true story of the Canadian woman (a convert to Islam) who duped the eager-to-believe media into reporting rapes that never happened at the Abu Ghraib prison

Did the U.S. -- as charged by the Left -- fund the Taliban in the 1980s? (Answer: Impossible! The Taliban wasn't even formed until 1995)

The treacherous strategy of disinformation goes far beyond the Iraq War.

Indeed, it is employed by liberals throughout American culture as a means of indoctrination to glorify sex and violence, to trivialize family values, to glamorize drug consumption, to promote the tax-and-spend "social justice" agenda and, of course, to demonize anyone who dares disagree with the liberal orthodoxy.

I know it is easy for me to comment on what I would do as I live here in the heartland of America, but when I read about building a replica of Solomon's Temple in another site not on the Temple Mount, it really causes me to wonder what is going on in the minds of the Israeli people when they allow a bunch of pagan worshipers have a Mosque on the mount and Israelis not be allowed the same privilege. It reminds me of Israel at the time that Goliath challenged the army of Israel and only one man had the insight to understand who he represented, and went out in the name of G-d and slew the infidel, so why does the people and government of Israel let this pagan horde dictate to them what they can do on the temple mount, it is a direct parallel of the Goliath and David scene.

5. Rabbi Avraham Feld: "Oslo" (part one of a series of "Hazardous Facts" )

Hear Ye. Hear Ye! The following facts may be hazardous to your health and the health of all freedom loving peoples!


There is not and has never been a validated Oslo Accord between the PLO/PA and the State of Israel. What, you may exclaim? Why then does the media constantly engage in discussing this agreement as if it were live and well and agreed upon by two sides? Has it been forgotten that the Palestinian ruling body never signed this accord? Why does Israel along with many nations of the world proceed as if it were valid and considered so by two sides? The fact is that despite the status of the agreement, Israel continued along giving the PA billions of dollars, weapons, land concessions and political autonomy? This is a bitter realization; that so many sacrifices were made for an agreement existing in theory only. The media continued to push under the carpet the fact that the old covenant calling for the destructing of Israel was alive and well in the PLO/PA committees, while Oslo remained unsigned. Everybody seemed to recognize the Oslo Accords - with the important exclusion of one of the two parties bound by the agreement. Now, there is anger that this fact remained clouded over, and only after the granting of autonomy, with the following terrible bloodshed, serious injuries and loss of life, destruction, and damage to Israel's socioeconomic structures, this fact become painfully clear. Why now are we just being told that there never was a valid accord? For what did we stake so many lives?


The truth is, as stated above; there is not and never was a valid Oslo Agreement. After himself signing the accords, Arafat summoned the PLO's executive committee to session but was not able or did not wish to succeed in achieving a quorum. Therefore no vote could be held at this time. Arafat may have called for further meetings but out of opposition to Oslo, various factions always succeeded in boycotting critical meetings. Not then, and not ever was a favorable vote achieved in this committee. In addition, after three sessions of the Fatah Central Committee, it was decided that no vote would be held. Arafat never even attempted to convene the PLO National Council, where he might try again and petition for approval of the accords. (The above is equivalent to the parliamentary rejection of a Prime Ministers proposal or a presidents failure to win approval either in the House, the Senate or his own Cabinet.) Therefore, all that was received by America, Israel, and the rest of the world was a piece of paper signed by one master criminal terrorist, not validated by parties of leadership and with no binding legal power over the PLO-PA. The media continued to emphasize the acceptance by one man of the accords, but Arafat's signature did not create a working Accord. It certainly did not replace the old militantly anti-Semitic Covenant which remained as the PLO/PA's official reference and legislative machine. The basis for a lethal situation had already been laid, A documented calling for compromise, mutual rights, a laying down of arms and mutual trust, was signed, seriously studied and implemented by one of the opposing sides, was phlegmatically ignored by the other, and with more then a little help form the media was cheered and applauded by the rest of the world.
In addition to the above, there are many experts who believe that Arafat himself was against the accords, and that he himself instructed and engineered the blockage of the accords.


Despite the media's insistence that the PA\PLO had changed some of the statutes of the covenant, (and specifically the statutes calling for Israel's destruction) this simply was not so. The PLO continued to act according to it's old covenant. They simply used the old Palestinian covenant as a basis to legislate new laws when needed.

The Oslo accords were never legal, were never ratified, and were never made binding to any of the PLO organizations. Hence, the continued terror, support of terror, and sedition of the PA/PLO never violated any agreements, because they had never accepted them upon themselves Arafat's scribblings. As one PLO member once said, the White House and the Israelis can scribble on toilet paper all they want. And if Arafat signs at the end of the roll, it still has nothing to do with us.

Just imagine the volume of the noise, the hysteria, panic and screaming the media would make in the case of any government that tried to push down peoples throats, without referendum etc, a right-wing religious agenda based on a nonratified agreement with a foreign suspect entity. That’s right. The outcry would reach the high heavens, would be nonstop 24/7, and would result in legal sanctions against such moves. In our case, a left-wing agenda made with an arch-criminal terrorist and never ratified by the groups he supposedly represented, met with absolute silence. The media demonstrated moral bankruptcy and negligence that could be considered criminal. In other words, reviving the real old-fashioned soviet style of reporting.

This is now claimed to be a hoax built up around a natural hilltop

(b) Debate concerning the site of Ecbatana, Capital of the Medes
Ecbatana was the captial of the Medes, then of the Scythians, and again of
the Medes. The Talmud identifies it with Hamadan and says it was one of the cities of the Medes to which Israelites
were exiled (2-Kings 17). Rawlinson believed there had been two important cities of that name.

"Brit-Am Now"-626 (item #4. Daily Miracles) in which
we spoke of how successful and dedicated the Police Army and Security forces had been and how God was protecting us partly through their agency when the report of a terrorist attack in Netanyah came through.
On the one hand this was like a slap in the face since at the very moment we had began giving ourselves a pat on the back as to how Divine Providence was protecting the citizens of Israel an exception occurred. We hope and pray it will remain an exception.
On the other hand the message did partly justify what we had written since the guards and police present had risked their lives, some were amongst the casualties, and if it was not for them far greater harm may have come about.

Palestinian Terrorism: Five Dead in Netanya
16:06 Dec 05, '05 / 4 Kislev 5766
By Hillel Fendel
Second time in five months: A Palestinian suicide terrorist murders five people at the HaSharon Mall in Netanya.

The blast occurred at approximately 11:30 AM. Some 55 people are reported wounded in light and moderate condition.

Two cars were reportedly seen speeding away from the site of the attack.
As has occurred many times in the past, the terrorist was unsuccessful in entering the mall, and was forced to detonate himself outside the building. A policewoman who was lightly wounded reported that a passerby alerted her to a suspicious figure, who began to run when she gave chase in her police car. "He was blonde, tall and holding a large bag. One of the [mall's] guards grabbed him by the shoulder, but I yelled, 'Forget the shoulder, get his hand!' because I saw that he had his hand in the bag. But then he blew himself up..." She said it was the seventh time she had been present at the scene of a terrorist attack.

Other witnesses that the guard pushed the terrorist away from the entrance to the mall. Police Chief Moshe Karadi said the explosion occurred about ten meters from the mall entrance.

Imra Web Site Report
Police Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi told reporters that the bomber was
"identified 15 meters in front of the mall by policemen and a security
guard. Police managed to keep him away from the gate, and he blew himself up
when police approached him to conduct a search of his bags."

According to Karadi, "Members of the security services were hurt in the
event," but "the actions of the guards and the police prevented a much more
deadly bombing."

3. UN Votes Against Israel
Israel, U.N. Favorite
by Daniel Pipes December 5, 2005
Each round of Israeli disengagement, withdrawal, retreat (or whatever one
wishes to call it) wins the temporary approval of the wide world, as
symbolized by the United Nations General Assembly.

After the Oslo accords were signed in September 1993, the General Assembly
voted 155 to 3, with 1 abstention and 19 states not voting, to express "its
full support for the achievements of the peace process thus far." After the
Barak government retreated from Lebanon in May 2000, U.N. Secretary-General
Kofi Annan praised Israel for this "important development in the Israeli-UN

There is a long history of Israeli prime ministers being rewarded for giving
things away. .

The world will say it is a good step forward, and in a month or two or three
the world will say, "What is next?" This only buys a little time of feting.
It's a sucker's game. You can't win. .

And - surprise! - right on schedule, the good mood is indeed over. On Dec.
2, the General Assembly voted on six resolutions concerning Israel and its
neighbors, and in each of the six it reverted to form, lambasting, bashing,
and accusing Israel at every turn. For example, by a vote of 156 in favor to
6 against (those being Australia, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States
of Micronesia, Palau, United States), with 9 abstentions (Cameroon, Canada,
Costa Rica, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tuvalu, Uganda, Vanuatu), the
General Assembly passed a resolution calling on Israeli withdrawal from the
territories it won in 1967. By 153 to 7, it condemned Israeli jurisdiction
and administration in Jerusalem. And so forth, through the various issues.

Winston Churchill warned that "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile,
hoping it will eat him last." The U.N. crocodile has shown it is satiated
but briefly by Israel, returning after each "painful concession" with an
even more voracious appetite. Will Israelis ever again understand that wars
are won through victory, not retreat?
